AAS Fellow Award

Areas of Research and Expertise:

Working with the absolute rates of chemical reactions in thermally
reacting systems. Most of the work has been in support of
practical disciplines such as atmospheric chemistry or the chemistry
of combustion using a variety of techniques including discharge
flow tube and flash or laser photolysis methods with atomic
resonance absorption and/or fluorescence spectrometric detection.
When appropriate, laser induced fluorescence has also been used
to detect reacting species. When appropriate, laser induced
fluorescence has also been used to detect reacting species. In
recent years, these methods have been applied to high temperature
chemistry, and absolute values of thermal rate constants can now
be directly determined by using the shock tube technique.
