Former Undergraduate Research Assistant, Aerospace Engineering Department
Diego joined LDPDL in summer 2018 and first worked on simulations of laser propagation through free space and inhomogeneous media. This project centers on understanding the capabilities of collimated particle jets for focusing and guiding lasers through space, with applications to propulsion and communications. Later, Diego assisted with the design of the beam propagation section and beam dump for experiments on cold rubidium particle beams.
After graduating, Diego joined the team at Blue Origin as a manufacturing engineer.
