Howard Milchberg Named Distinguished Scholar-Teacher

Professor Howard Milchberg, who holds joint appointments in the Clarks School's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, the Institute for Physical Science and Technology (IPST), and the Physics Department, has been named a University of Maryland Distinguished Scholar-Teacher. This marks the third year in a row in which a professor from the Clark School has been so honored. Dr. Milchberg will receive his award at the 22nd Annual Faculty and Staff Convocation in 2005, and will present a public lecture at a date to be announced.

Shared exploration defines Dr. Milchberg's teaching style. "Teaching forces me to reexamine my basis for understanding a subject," he states, "and I enjoy shining that spotlight on the material together with my students." He received a teaching excellence certificate from his department earlier this fall.

Dr. Milchberg's research centers on the interaction of intense laser pulses with matter, and the measurement of the ultrafast, ultra-hot, and ultra-dense processes that ensue, typically in novel plasmas. His work has application to x-ray sources for advanced lithography and imaging applications, laser-based generation of relativistically accelerated particles, and basic nonperturbative nonlinear physics.
