This fellowship supports graduate students planning to study high energy density physics and fluid dynamics, with particular emphasis on experimental investigations based on the utilization of lasers and/or pulsed power technology. This includes investigations in related areas of:
properties of materials under high energy density conditions
the interaction of radiation with matter
physics of turbulence and fluid interfaces
Additional areas of study supported by this fellowship include the physics of turbulence and fluid interfaces, the understanding of astrophysical phenomena, and the development of novel diagnostic and measurement techniques to study phenomena under high energy density conditions.
