Research Group

Mark Golkowski

The overarching area of interest of Professor Golkowski’s research group is the interactions of electromagnetic fields and matter and associated applications. This includes electromagnetic wave propagation and modeling, plasma discharges, waves in space and radio science. Research efforts can be classified into two sub-areas:

  • Phenomena of the ionosphere and magnetosphere:
    • Wave generation and radio science with the 3.6 MW HAARP ionospheric facility in Gakona, Alaska
    • Interactions of waves and energetic particles
    • Long distance wave propagation for communications and probing
    • Electromagnetic effects of lightning
  • See College of Engineering Alumni Newsletter Article on PARS Trip to Alaska 2010 HERE (page 6) See College of Engineering Faculty Highlight HERE See Story on Educational Outreach of Current Research Activities HERE
  • Medical applications of EM waves and plasma discharges:
    • Atmospheric pressure non-thermal plasma discharges for disinfection and sterilization
    • Electromagnetic waves in the human body
    • Thermoacoustic imaging
    • RF and microwave ablations
