JPL Group Gains Talented Postdoc

Dr. Konstantin Penanen has joined Talso Chui's group at JPL for a Postdoctoral Scholar appointment. Dr. Penanen graduated from Harvard University in 1999 under the supervision of Prof. P.S. Pershan. His Ph. D. thesis was titled "Free Surface of Liquid Helium Films Studied by X-Ray Specular Reflectivity". After his graduation, he did postdoctoral research with Prof. Richard Packard at U. C. Berkeley where he studied superfluid flow through small orifices in 4He at low temperatures. This experience will benefit his work at JPL where he will be investigating the depression of the superfluid density near the lambda transition under flow conditions.
