Wendell Hill Awarded National Science Foundation Grant

IPST Professor Wendell Hill’s project is devoted to developing an intensity gauge that is straightforward to implement and transferable to other laboratories.  Together with the emphasis on international engagement, and including underrepresented minorities, this project is providing a much-needed instrument while training a diverse cadre of students.  The project will include direct engagement with high-power laser facilities worldwide, including the Extreme Light Infrastructure (ELI) facilities in Czech Republic and Romania.  National Science Foundation, $651,518, “Relativistic Thomson Scattering Investigations with in-situ Electrons in the Focus at the Petawatt Level”.
