Louis A. Rosocha (A, ’94) earned the B.S. degree in physics from the University of Arkansas (Fayetteville) in 1972, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physics (minor in chemistry) from the University of Wisconsin (Madison) in 1975 and 1979, respectively.
From 1978-1981, he was at the National Research Group of Madison, WI, developing pulsed ultraviolet lasers, fast pulsed- power switchgear, and modeling commercial ozone generators. From October 1981 – January 2008, he was a technical staff member and manager at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). After an early retirement from LANL in 2008, Dr. Rosocha became an independent consultant, focusing his R&D interests on CO2 v sequestration/global warming, national energy security, and water/air pollution abatement.
Dr. Rosocha is currently a member of the American Physical Society, IEEE, and Phi Beta Kappa.
Dr. Rosocha has a lab in Los Alamos, NM where he constructs the power conditioning equipment for our plasma R&D. Dr. Morgan has a lab in Monument, CO where, with the help of our technician, Mr. Tim Eckert, we construct our experimental devices and perform the experiments (Mr. Eckert was formerly a model designer & builder for Disney Studios and the inventor of the world’s first large cell Li-ion battery powered electric race car, which has held the electric car speed record in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb for a decade).
Rosocha and Morgan have collaborated on plasma R&D since the early 1990s. Rosocha, Morgan, and Eckert are currently involved in R&D of a plasma remediation/sequestration process for radioactive Cs-137 from the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
