The High Temperature Gasdynamics Laboratory (HTGL) is a teaching and research group within the Thermosciences Group of the Mechanical Engineering Department at Stanford University. Our philosophy is to combine in our educational program aspects of atomic and molecular physics, lasers and electro-optics, physical chemistry and electromagnetic phenomena, together with the traditional mechanical engineering disciplines of fluid mechanics, heat transfer and thermodynamics. We are convinced that the interdisciplinary character of this program will be of major importance to the mechanical engineer of the future in adapting to new technologies, and will greatly expand his/her professional options, whether he/she is involved in research, teaching, engineering applications or technical management.
Admissions for graduate study in HTGL is handled by the Mechanical Engineering Admissions Office. Qualified students are encouraged to contact individual faculty members of HTGL whose research interests align with their own.
The offices of HTGL are located in Building 520, near the center of the Stanford University campus. Laboratory facilities are across the street in Building 570. Maps and driving directions are recommended to visitors.
