KAUST Research ConferenceCombustion in Extreme ConditionsMarch 5-8, 2018
Robert Lucht is the Ralph and Bettye Bailey Distinguished Professor of Combustion in Mechanical Engineering at Purdue University. His present research activities include fundamental experimental and theoretical studies of electronic-resonance-enhanced CARS and femtosecond CARS, and the application of dual-pump CARS and other laser diagnostics for measurements in high-pressure gas turbine combustion test rigs. He has authored or co-authored over 160 articles in archival journals, and advised or co-advised more than 35 PhD students. He is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America, the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA). In 2008 received the AIAA Aerodynamic Measurement Technology Award, and in 2013 he received the Excellence in Research Award from the College of Engineering at Purdue University. He is the Director of Zucrow Laboratories, an off-campus laboratory complex dedicated to research in thermal sciences and propulsion.
