Kurt Becker to lead the plasma physics sections of EPJ D

As of July 2009 The European Physical Journal D - Atomic, Molecular, Optical and Plasma Physics has a third Editor-in-Chief. Kurt H. Becker (NYU-Poly) has been appointed and will work alongside Franco Gianturco and Claude Fabre, toward strengthening EPJ D. His particular emphasis will be on low-temperature plasma physics.

Kurt H. Becker is a Professor of Physics and the Associate Provost for Research and Technology Initiatives at Polytechnic Institute of New York University (NYU-Poly) in Brooklyn, NY. His background is in experimental atomic, chemical, and plasma/discharge physics. He has worked extensively on experimental and theoretical studies of electron-driven processes and on low-temperature plasma science and technology. Prior to joining NYU-Poly in 2007, he held faculty positions at Lehigh University, the City College of CUNY, and at Stevens Institute of Technology, where he was the Head of the Department of Physics and Engineering Physics and also Associate Director of the Center for Environmental Systems. Kurt Becker is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and holds an Honorary Degree from the Leopold Franzens University Innsbruck, Austria.
