Chip Durfee named Fellow of Optical Society of America
The Board of Directors of the Optical Society of America elected Chip Durfee a Fellow of the Society at its meeting on October 8, 2013. The number of fellows is limited to no more than 10% of the total OSA membership.
Chip was recognized "for the development of the hollow core waveguide technology for high harmonic generation, which has led to engineered XUV light sources for attosecond science.
Using Sound Waves for Bomb Detection
Professor John Scales is part of a collaboration developing a remote acoustic detection system that can distinguish between low-yield and high-yeild explosives. You can read more on phys.org.
Kristine Callan Joins Faculty
Kristine Callan earned her PhD in Physics at Duke University in the summer of 2013. She studied small networks of chaotic systems and devised methods to determine global network properties from local dynamical measurements. While at Duke, she also earned the Dean's Award for Excellence in Teaching, in addition to attending many of the Duke men's and women's basketball games. Prior to completing her PhD, Kristine spent two years teaching physics at an all-girls high school in Boston, Massachusetts. She is originally from Central Oregon and looks forward to the similar climate and outdoor activities that Colorado provides.
