Detlef Lohse

Detlef Lohse earned his Ph.D. on the theory of turbulence in Marburg, Germany, in 1992. As a postdoc in Chicago and later in Marburg and München he worked on single bubble sonoluminescence. In 1998 he was appointed Chair of Physics of Fluids at the University of Twente, The Netherlands (http://pof.tnw.utwente.nl/). Lohse’s present research subjects are turbulence and multiphase flow, granular matter, and micro- and nanofluidics, employing experimental, theoretical, and numerical methods. Lohse is Associate Editor of and several other journals. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and of the Institute of Physics. He was also elected a Member of the German Academy of Science and the Royal Dutch Academy of Science. In 2005 he received the Spinoza Prize.

Fluid Dynamics

A novel dimensionless parameter allows prediction of whether dispersed particles in a turbulent flow enhance or attenuate the turbulence.
