Organization of the Center

This page shows the organizational management structure of the Center for Advanced Solar Photophysics (CASP), an Energy Frontier Research Center. It also describes the roles and responsibilities of the principal investigators and other key staff within the Center.

Organizational chart that shows the relationship of the Director of the Center for Advanced Solar Photophysics to the Executive Committee, Scientific Advisory Committee, Operations Point-of-Contact, and Spectroscopy Laboratory Coordinator. Also reporting to the Director are the leaders of the three Scientific Thrust Areas: Novel Physical Principles, Charge Manipulation and Exploratory Devices, and Novel Nanoscale Materials.

Organizational management structure of the Center for Advanced Solar Photophysics

The tremendous potential represented by such a large, diverse group of talented scientists demands an organization scheme that fosters cooperation and communication of results and ideas, without cumbersome administrative obligations that detract from the ability of individuals to focus on progress.

Center Directors

The Center has two directors who guide and manage its scientific and operational activities.
