Robert Boyd elected SPIE fellow

Here’s good news from Robert Boyd, Professor of Optics and of Physics, and his lab team: Dr. Boyd has been elected a Fellow of SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, for his achievements in nonlinear optics. To see the official press release, click here.

His research team made news recently by demonstrating a new method to measure a 27-dimensional quantum state. The work is of interest because fast, accurate and efficient methods for characterizing high-dimensional states like this could be central in developing high security quantum communications systems, as well as to probe our fundamental understanding of quantum mechanics.
