The Graduate Program in Applied Physics is a joint effort between the Newark
Campus of Rutgers University and the New Jersey Institute of Technology.
However, some of the faculty in the Applied Physics program are also members of
the Graduate Program in Physics and Astronomy associated with the
My current research interests are in frontier aspects of applied laser science and spectroscopy. Current projects are in stable isotope analysis via laser optogalvanic spectroscopy (the electrical response to resonant optical stimulation) for biomedical and environmental applications, discharge physics for semiconductor processing applications, heavy ion and electron beam pumped short wavelength laser physics with emphasis on excitation mechanisms and energy pathways, and laser surface modification. Research projects include experiment and modeling in a broad range of atomic, molecular and quantum electronic areas.
