My name is Junhwi Bak.

I am a senior research engineer at Aerospace Laboratory for Lasers, ElectroMagnetics and Optics (ALLEMO) at Texas A&M University.

My current research interests are in applications of state-of-the-art laser-aided diagnostics to plasma which can provide us unprecedented information about plasma. Currently, I am working on i) electron transpiration cooling which can be used for thermal management of hypersonic vehicle leading edges, ii) forward angle Thomson scattering, iii) dual-pulse laser ignition and energy deposition, iv) slow light imaging spectroscopy.

Previously, I had worked on study of plasma structure formation and electron transport in Hall thrusters, and gas diagnostics using Coherent Rayleigh-Brillouin Scattering.
