Christ Glorieux is an Associate Professor at the Laboratory for Acoustic and Thermic Physics (ATF) at the Physics and Astronomy Department of K.U. Leuven. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in 1994 on the topic “Depth profiling of inhomogeneous materials and study of the critical behavior of gadolinium by photo acoustic and related techniques”.
Glorieux is currently active in research an teaching. He is leading a research group in the field of photo thermal applications and laser ultrasonics for the fundamental study of the thermo physical properties of complex soft and heterogeneous matter, the development of measurement techniques for characterization and depth profiling of thin (sub-micron) layered structures, and non-destructive evaluation.
