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 (zz346)
Toronto native. Graduate of Engineering Science (Physics) at the University of Toronto. Currently working on nonlinear dynamics in multimode fiber. Loves food, arts and sports.
PhD student (wpf32)
Hails from either St. Louis or Philadelphia, depending on the day. After studying physics at Washington University, he came to Cornell, where he is now researching fiber lasers with an eye towards their practical applications. His proudest achievement to-date is that his nose appears at the edge of Frank’s official lab portrait (see above).
Post-doc (ps865) Ph.D. Physics, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology
Research interests: high-harmonic generation, coherent diffractive imaging, and super-resolution imaging. Currently working on nonlinear ultrafast fiber lasers for hyper-spectral nonlinear microscopy.
PhD student (mlb348)
Coming from the White Mountains of New Hampshire, he wants to use physics to make a difference. His interests are always expanding, and currently include development of fiber sources, plasma physics, and computation. Also loves to travel in the quest for new experiences.
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.
Born in San Diego, CA and from Westchester, NY. He studies Engineering Physics and loves mountain biking and playing ice hockey.
Research interests include ultrafast fiber lasers, nonlinear dynamics and quantum optics in optical waveguides.
