HAMMOND – Daniel McCarthy, physicist and dean of the Southeastern Louisiana University College of Science and Technology, has been appointed an associate editor of the journal “Radiation Effects and Defects in Solids.”
An international peer-reviewed scientific journal based in England, the publication is focused on plasma science and plasma technology and publishes papers on both fundamental and applied science that contribute to the understanding of phenomena produced by the interaction of radiation and matter.
A specialist in the area of plasma physics, McCarthy is one of three associate editors representing the United States, serving with others from Russia, Japan, Germany, India, Czech Republic and other nations.
McCarthy previously served as head of the Department of Chemistry and Physics. He is a recipient of Southeastern’s President’s Award for Excellence in Research and has been awarded several grants for magnetic fusion research from the U.S. Department of Energy. His research focuses on the nuclear fusion process of producing energy, the same energy process found in the sun and stars.
