Patrick wins AFOSR Young Investigator Award

Patrick has been selected to receive an award from the Young Investigator Program of the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.  The objective of this program is to foster creative basic research in science and engineering, enhance early career development of outstanding young investigators, and increase opportunities for the young investigators to recognize the Air Force mission and the related challenges in science and engineering.  Patrick’s proposed research is focused on the fundamental interactions between femtosecond laser pulses and solids, exploring the regimes of ballistic transport, electron distribution, and electron, phonon, and interfacial scattering mechanisms.

The title of the awarded project is “Electron Dynamics During High-Power, Short-Pulsed Laser Interactions with Solids and Interfaces.”
