Professor Antonsen Appointed to ECE Professorship

The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering congratulates Professor Thomas Antonsen  for recently being appointed the title of ECE Professorship in Electrophysics. An adhoc committee composed of Professors Isaak Mayergoyz, Ray Liu and Chis Davis unanimously selected Antonsen for the honor.

Antonsen’s research in electrophysics focuses on the theory of magnetically confined plasmas, the theory and design of free-electron lasers and other sources of coherent radiation, nonlinear dynamics and the theory of the interaction of intense laser pulses with plasmas. He has published more than 400 scientific papers in various journals as well as a book titled, “Principles of Free-electron Lasers.”

Antonsen is a professor in the ECE and Physics departments, and is part of the Institute for Research and Applied Physics (IREAP).
