Samuel B. Eckert Professor of Engineering Applied and Engineering Physics
(607) 255-1184, fww1
Frank Wise received a BS in Engineering Physics from Princeton University, an MS in Electrical Engineering from the University of California at Berkeley, and a PhD in Applied Physics from Cornell University. Before PhD studies, he worked on advanced integrated circuits at Bell Laboratories. Since receiving the PhD in 1988, he has been on the faculty in Applied Physics at Cornell. From 2007 to 2011 he served as Director of the School of Applied and Engineering Physics.
PhD student (yc2368)
Loves judo, physics, and math. Also a practitioner of the principles of judo, seiryoku zen’yō (maximum efficiency, minimum effort) and jita kyōei (mutual welfare and benefit). He is currently working on nonlinear fiber optics hoping to make something different.
PhD Student (yw974)
He comes from Shenyang, Liaoning, China. Playing the guitar and reading Kung fu novels are his hobbies. Guided by many human wisdoms, he is always pursuing a better state of life, for an example, the “Third State” of life proposed by Guowei Wang. His research interest is both linear and nonlinear effect in multimode fibers.
PhD Student (tsh67)
Henry is interested in developing ultrafast fiber lasers for applications and in studying nonlinear spatiotemporal waves in multimode fiber.
PhD Student (ye44)
Yishai hopes to learn new and old physics, then manipulate it to create new technologies. When he’s not working on that he enjoys hiking and doing nothing.
Nick’s interests revolve around using wavefront shaping to create and control complex light in free space and in disordered media.
Wenchao’s previous research mainly focused on nonlinear dynamics and interesting physical phenomena in fiber lasers. Now he is committed to generating ultrafast lasers with high pulse energy through nonlinear amplification, to provide reliable light sources for scientific research and practical applications.
