Dr. Dothe is currently a Principal Scientist who joined Spectral Sciences, Inc. in September 1998. Prior to joining SSI, he was in charge of maintenance, testing, and upgrading of upper atmospheric optical modeling codes (SHARC and SAMM) for the Air Force Research Laboratory. His experience there included atmospheric chemical modeling, data-model comparisons, and the development and implementation of state-to-state molecular kinetics models for non-LTE conditions. As part of the non-LTE kinetics model development, he performed quantum scattering calculations and developed the Distorted Wave Impulse Approach for atom-diatom collisions.
