Electronic Environmental Detectives
As we seek to solve, or even study, environmental problems effectively we must measure and analyze them. Electronics has been enabling atmospheric and other environmental sciences since the early 20th century. This Sunday at the Sarnoff talk by physicist and Sarnoff volunteer Jonathan Allen will discuss the evolution and current state of electronic instruments for atmospheric measurements, and analysis including both gaseous and particulate pollutants, as well as instruments developed by the author.

Jonathan Allen
Jonathan Allen received his Ph.D. in physics from Washington University in St. Louis. Continuing in the area of his thesis, he developed new instruments for analyzing atmospheric aerosol pollution. His career then turned to the emerging solar power industry where he developed RF power systems for plasma deposition of thin film photovoltaic materials. He has also taught electronics engineering. Now semi-retired, he is an independent consultant specializing in radio frequency R&D and custom instrumentation. Dr. Allen is as a volunteer at the Sarnoff Collection.
