Warren B. Mori obtained the M.S. the Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering in 1984 and 1987, respectively. He has been on the faculty of the Electrical Engineering Department and/or the Physics Department since 1987. Currently he is a full professor in both departments at UCLA. He also consults for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Prof. Mori holds the patents for the method for upshifting light frequency by rapid plasma creation, and for the use of relativistic ionization fronts for tunable radiation. His work earned the International Center for Theoretical Physics Medal for Excellence in Nonlinear Plasma Physics by a Young Researcher in 1995, and in 1997 he was elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society for his "outstanding contributions to particle simulations of complex laser-plasma phenomena and of plasma based light sources".
Dr. Mori is a member of the American Physical Society, the Optical Society of America, and the IEEE.
Professor Mori's research focuses on laser plasma interactions, advanced accelerator concepts, and advanced light sources.
