Aerospace engineering student wins Lempert Student Paper Award
Congratulations go to aerospace engineering doctoral candidate Jonathan Retter. He was selected as the 2018 winner of The Walter R. Lempert Student Paper Award in Diagnostics for Fluid Mechanics, Plasma Physics, and Energy Transfer. Retter’s paper, co-authored by his advisor, Professor Greg Elliott, is entitled “Investigations on a DBD Burner: Corrected Filtered Rayleigh Scattering by means of Spontaneous Raman Scattering.”
The award honors the legacy of the late Walter Lempert and is jointly sponsored by the Aerodynamic Measurement Technology (AMT), Plasmadynamics and Lasers (PDL) and Propellants and Combustion (PC) technical committees. Each technical committee nominated one paper for the award with the winner selected by a panel of judges evenly chosen from the AMT, PDL and PC membership.
Retter’s paper was selected as the winner due to its high technical quality and outstanding contribution to innovative advancement of diagnostics for fluid mechanics, plasma physics and energy transfer.
The award will be presented at the AIAA Aviation and Aeronautics Forum and Exposition (AIAA AVIATION) which takes place June 25-29 in Atlanta, Georgia.
