Master’s Student, Aerospace Engineering Department
Frisco joined LDPDL in summer 2018. As an undergraduate research assistant, he researched laser-generated plasmas using a diagnostic known as two-color interferometry and developed a powerful least-squares method for analysis of phase map data for extraction of plasma parameters. He has also demonstrated plasma measurements near the surface of a liquid droplet. After completing his bachelor’s degree at Texas A&M in spring 2020, Frisco continued his tenure in the lab as a master’s student. Currently, he is developing a laser frequency locking mechanism for filtered Rayleigh measurements inside the NAL’s new hypervelocity expansion tunnel (HXT).
