Spotlight: George Hine
Chirped Pulse Amplification and the Briefest and Brightest Flashes of Light
Hine received BS degrees in chemical engineering and physics in 2011 from Rutgers University. In 2017, he received his PhD from the University of Maryland, College Park. His dissertation work was the advancement of laser-based particle accelerator technology with Prof. Howard Milchberg. He subsequently investigated dielectric breakdown at UMD with Prof. Tim Koeth as a postdoctoral research associate and is currently a postdoctoral research associate at Oak Ridge National Lab. There, he is developing laser-based diagnostics for superconducting materials used in particle accelerators.
Hine will share his research into interesting uses of lasers in research.
Spotlights are included with museum admission.
