Electromagnetics, plasmas and computation group


The  University of Colorado Denver Electromagnetics, Plasmas and Computation Group brings together faculty members and researchers who investigate a wide range of topics including applied electromagnetics, magnetization of materials, physics of the near- Earth space environment, wave-particle interactions and novel communication solutions. Much of our work focuses on the use of extremely low frequency (ELF: 3- 3000 Hz ) and very low frequency (VLF: 3 – 30 kHz ) electromagnetic waves. We are involved in remote sensing, active experiments and numerical simulations with external funding from a variety of sources including the National Science Foundation, NASA, the Office of Naval Research and DARPA.
