Lathrop Officially Named IREAP Director

Dan Lathrop, acting director of the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics, will officially become director on July 1.

Lathrop, a physicist, is leading research that may provide the world's first experimental self-sustaining duplication of the earth's magnetic field.

He took over the IREAP leadership post in 2005 when then-director Patrick O’Shea left to chair the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

A joint institute of the Clark School and the College of Computer, Mathematical and Physical Sciences, IREAP applies basic science skills to practical problems and engineering skills to fundamental scientific investigations. The institute is recognized internationally in high-temperature plasma physics, plasma spectroscopy, relativistic microwave electronics, high-brightness charged particle beams, laser-plasma interactions, nonlinear dynamics (chaos), ion beam microfabrication techniques, microwave sintering of advanced materials, nanoscience and nanotechnology.
