Qiang Du, Early Career Research Program Award (2017)

Qiang Du of the Engineering Division’s Electronics Engineering and Controls Group was among five scientists to be selected for the 2017 Early Career Research Program Award. Du’s award was titled “Scalable control of multidimensional coherent pulse addition for high average power ultrafast lasers”. The project was selected by the Office of High Energy Nuclear Physics and he will be working with the Accelerator Technology and Applied Physics Division.  For this project, Du will “design, build, and demonstrate a scalable distributed digital stabilization control system for robust multidimensional coherent combining of ultrafast fiber lasers, and make it available as a general toolbox in ultrafast optics control. High average power ultrafast lasers are essential tools that support fundamental science and applications.” . More >
