Dayne Fratanduono's doctoral work examined the index of refraction of lithium Fluoride at pressures in excess of 100 GPa. He joined the Shock Physics group at LLNL as a postdoc in January 2011 where his research includes thermal diffusivity under shock compression and equation of state measurements. His research interests include optical properties of transparent crystals, energy of state studies using isentropic compression, heat transfer properties under dynamic compression, and phase transitions in shock and ramp compression.
