Name: Sentman, Lee H. (1937-2010)


Historical Note:

Former Director of the Chemical Laser Laboratory

Conducted research concerning the fundamental understanding of the fluid dynamic, chemical kinetic and radiative interactions that determine the performance of continuous wave chemical lasers. This understanding and the resulting data base provide the basis on which technology decisions may be made in the development of these devices.
