About Me

Dr. Jeongwoo Lee (JL) is working at the Center for Solar and Terrestrial Research in NJIT as a research professor. JL is best known to American Solar Physics community for his colorful picture illustrating how solar microwave maps are related to the 3D coronal magnetic field above solar active regions. JL´s current interest lies in solar radio bursts as a way of diagnosing high-energy electrons in 10 keV to several MeV, or learning some exotic radiation mechanisms. JL has never been a terrific solar observer, but nonetheless written a package of Solar Microwave Imaging Software for use with the interferrometric data obtained with Owens Valley Solar Array. JL is currently working hard in order to participate in a nation-wide project to build the Frequency-Agile Solar Radiotelescope, which might help him to have a better solar observation.

Research Interests

I have built my research career in various topics of solar physics including solar MHD theory, radiative transfer, and magnetic field measurement. With my thesis work, however, I have mainly involved with solar radio physics, on which my current research interests and activities are also focused. Since this field requires a serious involvement with the instrument and processing, I found it easy to summarize my research interests according to specific instruments.
