Post-Doctoral Researcher, Aerospace Engineering Department
Dr. Yue Wu received his doctoral degree at the University of Tennessee Knoxville (UTK) in 2015, with his thesis focusing on development of radar detected resonant enhanced multi-photon ionization (REMPI) diagnostic for methyl radical, ethylene and molecular oxygen. After spending two years as a postdoctoral researcher at UTK following his doctorate, Yue arrived at Texas A&M University in early fall 2017. At LDPDL Dr. Wu has pursued detailed studies of laser-generated plasmas for diagnostic and flow control applications, especially breakdown and hydrodynamics under low pressure conditions. His research has also involved optical diagnostics and aero-optical properties of non-equilibrium gases generated by nanosecond discharges.
