Dr. Guler joined Spectral Sciences as a Senior Scientist in March 2014. His current research interests include hyperspectral imaging and remote sensing. When he was a postdoctoral research associate at Los Alamos National Laboratory (2010-2014), he worked on imaging and interpretation of the neutron emission from inertial confinement fusion (ICF) experiments at the National Ignition Facility (NIF). He contributed to the nuclear diagnostic efforts on the ICF implosions in order to better understand the thermo-nuclear ignition process and provide feedback to improve the capsule design. He also worked on the development of a short pulse laser generated neutron source and its applications, especially performing the first neutron radiography, source size measurements as well as contributing to the first nondestructive assay (NDA) applications of this new kind of neutron source. Dr. Guler also worked on various experiments at Jefferson Lab (2002-2009) and Brookhaven National Lab (2000-2002), mainly focusing on the spin structure of the nucleon. He performed and analyzed double polarized electron-nucleon (and nucleon-nucleon) scattering experiments to measure the spin dependent asymmetries that reveal the internal spin structure of the nucleon. He also worked on modelling the nucleon spin asymmetries (both for proton and neutron) using the available world data.
