Biography

Robert Bernath graduated from Jacksonville University in 2002 with a B.S. in Engineering Physics and a minor in Math. Since then he has been working at the University of Central Florida in the College of Optics/ CREOL where he completed his PhD in Electro-Optics in 2007. His area of study is high-peak-power lasers, and the interaction technologies associated with their use. In addition, he is proficient in plasma code simulations of laser interactions with material. Dr. Bernath has worked on many different topic areas including x-ray generation, EUV generation, material processing, laser design and construction, laser plasma modeling, and femtosecond pulse propagation through the atmosphere and the interaction effects. The most recent work utilizing filamentation of femtosecond laser pulses through the atmosphere is ongoing work, some of which will be published in the near future. Dr. Bernath is currently continuing his work on EUV source technology in a spin-off company formed from the university. For more information regarding any work, please feel free to contact him directly.
