Professor Dibble’s research interests focus on combustion, and he has investigated a wide range of combustion-related topics over the years, including turbulent flows, gas turbines, micro turbines, spark ignited engines, and Diesel engines. More recently, he has investigated the applications of diode lasers to combustion systems; the removal of nitric oxide (NOx) from combustion systems; and Homogenous Charge Compression Ignited (HCCI) Engines. His earlier research into oxygenated fuel has contributed to the generation and application of biofuels, which are greenhouse gas neutral.
