Dr. Jon P. Longtin
Professor in Mechanical Engineering at SUNY-Stony Brook.
Dr. Longtin joined the Mechanical Engineering Faculty at Stony Brook in the fall of 1996. He is the author of over 130 technial research publications, including book chapters in Microscale Energy Transport and the Annual Review of Heat Transfer. He holds six issued and three pending US patents, three of which are under license. His research expertise is in the thermal sciences, with a focus on developing laser-based optical measurement techniques for temperature, concentration, and thermal properties; using ultra fast lasers for precision materials processing and micromachining, and the development of sensors for harsh environments using direct-write thermal spray technology, including thermistors and thermocouples for temperature, resistance gauges, and humidity sensors. Dr. Longtin is the recipient of the JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship, NSF CAREER and PECASE and the Stony Brook Excellence in Teaching awards. He is a registered Professional Engineer in New York State.
