Curriculum Vitae


PhD, Experimental solid state physics, Cornell University, 1970

AB, Physics, Franklin and Marshall College, 1962


Dr. Buchenauer received an A.B. degree in physics from Franklin & Marshall College, Lancaster, PA, in 1962, and the Ph.D. degree in solid state physics from Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, in 1970. He was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Brown University and the University of Utah, conducting research on inelastic light scattering in solids. In 1974 he joined the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory, Idaho Falls, as a Senior Research Engineer, working on fission reactor diagnostic measurements. From 1975 through 2006, he was on the technical staff at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, Los Alamos, NM, where he worked in the controlled thermonuclear research programs, optics, electromagnetic phenomenology, and remote sensing. From 1991 to 1998, he was also an IPA at the Air Force Research Laboratory, Albuquerque, NM, where he conducted research on time domain sensors and antennas and pulsed power phenomena. Since 2003, he has also been on the research faculty of the ECE department at UNM, where he worked on the Compact Pulsed Power Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative and high power microwave programs.
