Bio and Interests
Joining the Cziczo group, postdoctoral associate Justin Jacquot works in the field of experimental optics, particularly the characterization of atmospheric particles. Some of his early research included building an icing chamber to create and investigate mixed-phase cloud conditions in the lab. He used this to improve the Interferometric Particle Imaging (IPI) technique with a focus on water droplets and ice crystals sizing and discrimination. This project helped develop a new airborne instrument for detecting icing conditions for commercial aircraft (http://www.haic.eu/).   Since then, Jacquot has mainly worked on an optical technique called Digital In-line Holography (DIH) to observe micron-sized liquid/ice particles in lab. Recently, his research investigated the imaging of rough surfaces at the microscopic scale with backscatter digital-holography. Before arriving at MIT, Jacquot worked with the Ariya group at McGill University and the Berg group at Kansas State University.  In EAPS, Jacquot will help develop the Next Generation of Particle Analysis by Laser Mass Spectrometry (PALMS NG). This instrument will be deployed during the DCOTSS flights on the NASA ER2 aircraft in 2020 (https://dcotss.org/). Justin Jacquot received his PhD (2016) from the Normandie Université, and his MSc (2012) and BSc (2010) from the Université de Lorraine.
