Elton, Raymond C.
Dr. Elton's expertise lies in the areas of optical and spectroscopic diagnostics of high temperature plasmas and, in particular, the development and understanding of lasers for the x-ray spectral region. He is presently involved in fielding diagnostics for fusion experiments and for measuring spectral line intensities and profiles in laser-produced plasmas.
Dr. Elton received his doctorate in physics from the University of Maryland in 1963.
He is the author of the seminal book in the field entitled "X-ray Lasers."
Dr. Elton was elected a fellow of the American Physical Society, Division of Plasma Physics. He is also a fellow of the Optical Society of America and a recipient of the Sigma Xi Pure Science Award.
