The plasma source used in the experiment was developed by a team of scientists led by Chandrashekhar Joshi, director of the Neptune Facility for Advanced Accelerator Research at UCLA. He is the UCLA principal investigator for this research, a faculty member with the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, and a long-time collaborator with the SLAC group.

Chandrashekhar Joshi, distinguished professor of electrical engineering, and Alan N. Willson Jr., distinguished professor emeritus of electrical engineering and holder of the Charles P. Reames Chair in Electrical Engineering, were among 67 new members elected to the NAE for their outstanding contributions to engineering research, practice or education, the academy announced today.

Chandrashekhar Joshi was recognized by the academy for "contributions to the development of laser and beam-driven plasma accelerators."
Joshi is known as the founder of the experimental field of plasma accelerators. At UCLA in the 1980s, he established the first group that proposed to significantly shrink the size and cost of particle accelerators by using charged density waves in plasmas (or ionized gas) using powerful laser pulses or particle beams.
Joshi's UCLA group remains at the forefront of its field, and the lab has nurtured many students and researchers who have gone on to form their own research teams. In addition to plasma accelerators, Joshi has advanced the understanding of nonlinear optics of plasmas, laser fusion and basic plasma physics.
The ultimate goal of Joshi's research is to provide a paradigm-changing technology for building particle accelerators for fundamental research, as well as for medical and industrial applications.
"This is a great honor," Joshi said. "I have been fortunate to have spent my research career at UCLA with supportive colleagues and staff and to have had continuous support from the Department of Energy. I have worked with many generations of brilliant students and researchers whose effort is being recognized by this election to the National Academy of Engineering."
Joshi, who received his Ph.D. from Hull University in the United Kingdom, came to UCLA in 1980 as a researcher after a postdoctoral appointment at the National Research Council Canada. He has been a full professor in the electrical engineering department since 1989.
Joshi has received numerous previous awards for his work, including the American Physical Society's James Clerk Maxwell Prize and Excellence in Plasma Physics Award, the IEEE's Particle Accelerator Science and Technology Award, the USPAS Prize for Accelerator Physics and Technology, and the AAC Prize for Advanced Accelerator Concepts.

Chandrashekhar Joshi
Director and Co-Founder
Professor Joshi is a Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering at UCLA. He is also Director of the Center for High Frequency Electronics and heads the Neptune Laboratory for Advanced Accelerator Research at UCLA. He received his B.Sc. (1974) from London University and Ph.D. (1978) from Hull University, both in the U.K. Following a two year stint as a research associate at the National Research Council of Canada, where he worked on laser-plasma interactions, he joined UCLA first as a researcher and since 1988 as a faculty member. At UCLA, Professor Joshi has built a strong research group that has done pioneering work in the areas of laser-plasma instabilities, plasma-based light sources, laser-fusion and basic plasma experiments. His group is best known, however, for developing the field of plasma based particle accelerators over the past two decades. Professor Joshi is a Fellow of the APS, IEEE and Institute of Physics (U.K). He is also the recipient of DPP's Excellence in Plasma Physics Award (1996), the USPAS prize for Achievement in Accelerator Physics and Technology (1997) and the James Clerk Maxwell Prize for Plasma Physics (2006).

Dr. Joshi received his B.S. degree in Nuclear Engineering from London University in 1974 and his Ph.D. in Applied Physics in 1978 from Hull University, England. He held a postdoctoral position at the National Research Council in Ottawa, Canada for two years. Since 1980, he has been with the Electrical Engineering Department at UCLA; first as a member of the research staff and since 1988 as a full Professor. He is currently the Director of the Center for High Frequency Electronics at UCLA. Prof. Joshi has made many fundamental contributions to our understanding of extremely nonlinear optical effects in plasmas. Most notable including his first experimental demonstration of four-wave mixing, stimulated raman forward instability, resonant self-focusing, frequency upshifting by ionization fronts and nonlinear coupling between electron-plasma waves. Prof. Joshi is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and of the IEEE.
