National Lab Partners

An important part of the training associated with our program will be to place students at U. S. Companies and National Laboratories having strong involvements with coherent optical phenomena. We anticipate such visits would last for 2 to 3 months, perhaps in the summer, but with sufficient flexibility that they are mutually agreeable and simultaneously sufficiently long to allow the student to gain from the experience.  We have made arrangements with Dr. Matt Goodman at Telecordia (who will also serve on our Advisory Committee), Dr. Gary Wiederrecht (who leads the Nanophotonics effort at the new Nanoscience Research Facility) at Argonne National Labs, Dr. Carl J. Williams (Chief, Atomic Physics Division, Coordinator of the Quantum Information Program) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology and Dr. Raymond Beausoleil at the HP Laboratories.

More information on the nationwide IGERT program is available at their website.

The current website is still under construction. More information will be added as it is available.
