Zeringue aids in software project

Staff reports

Department of the Air Force Civilian Clint M. Zeringue recently helped to develop an extensive modeling and simulation software package in Wolfram Mathematica to model fiber amplifiers.

The software is one of the world’s most comprehensive laser models, and was developed at the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Directed Energy Directorate's Laser Division at Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M. Air Force scientists and engineers will use the enhanced model to simulate fiber laser concepts and technology. The first model will also aid the warfighter by enabling the production of powerful fiber lasers that can be deployed as directed energy weapons.

Zeringue is an associate research physicist with the 377th Air Base Wing at Kirtland Air Force Base. The physicist has a total of four years of military service.

He is the son of Barry and Lisa Zeringue of Prairieville. Zeringue is the brother of Barry, Alison, and Renee Zeringue of Lake Indigo Drive, Baton Rouge, and Jared Zeringue of Memphis, Tenn.

Zeringue is a 2001 graduate of Germantown High School, Tenn. He received a bachelor’s degree in 2005 from the U.S. Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colo., and earned a master's degree in 2006 from the Air Force Institute of Technology, Dayton, Ohio.
