Alumnus Yu-Hsin Chen Wins Rosenbluth Award

Alumnus Yu-Hsin Chen Wins Rosenbluth Award

Dr. Yu-Hsin Chen, a former doctoral student advised by Professor Howard Milchberg (ECE/PHY/IPST), has been awarded the 2012 Marshall N. Rosenbluth Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award. Chen is the third student mentored by Professor Milchberg to have won this award, a record for an advisor.

Yu-Hsin Chen received his Ph.D. from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) at the University of Maryland in 2011. He is currently a member of the Post-Doctoral Research Staff at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in Livermore, CA.

The American Physical Society Division of Plasma Physics (APS-DPP) established the Marshall Rosenbluth Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award to recognize exceptional young scientists who have performed original doctoral thesis research of outstanding scientific quality and achievement in the area of plasma physics. The award is currently sponsored by General Atomics, Inc.

Dr. Chen was awarded “for measurements and theory of the ultrafast, high field, nonlinear response of gases near the ionization threshold, characterization of femtosecond plasma filaments, and demonstration that femtosecond filamentation requires plasma stabilization.”

As customary for recipients of the award, Chen will be giving an invited presentation at the DPP annual meeting which will be held in Providence, Rhode Island, from October 29-November 2. For more information please visit the American Physical Society website.
