Dr. Jes Asmussen is an University Distinguished Professor and is The Richard M. Hong Chaired Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Michigan State University, and is currently Executive Director of the Fraunhofer Center For Coatings and Laser Processing. Dr. Asmussen's research activities are concerned with the invention, diagnosis and the application of microwave plasma free radical sources, microwave broad-beam ion sources, microwave plasma thin film deposition and microwave plasma etching techniques, microwave ion engines and microwave electrothermal engines for spacecraft propulsion and specialized microwave applicators for processing layered polymeric and/or composite materials. Dr. Asmussen is a Fellow of the IEEE, has authored numerous conference and journal publications, holds twenty U.S. patents, has served as a consultant to over twenty-five industry, and government agencies. A number of the microwave plasma and material processing machines developed by Dr. Asmussen and his MSU colleagues been licensed by industry and are now in commercial application.
