George Hospodarsky, Ph.D.

Research Scientist/Engineer

Research specialty: space physics, spaced based search coil magnetometers, plasma and radio wave instruments


Research Interests:

Research interest is primarily in measuring and understanding the radio and plasma waves found in the magnetospheres of the outer planets and Earth.  Areas of interest include wave-normal and Poynting vector analysis of whistler mode waves and their relationship to energetic particle. Also Interested in the design, testing, calibration,and  operation of radio and plasma wave instruments and sensors flown on spacecraft and sounding rockets, with special interest in search coil magnetometers.
