gr8-1.jpg Robert K. Tyson is an Associate Professor of Physics and Optical Science at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He has a B.S. in physics from Penn State University and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in physics from West Virginia University. He was a senior systems engineer with United Technologies Optical Systems from 1978 to 1987 and a senior scientist with Schafer Corporation until 1999. He is the author of Principles of Adaptive Optics [Academic Press (1991), Second Edition (1998), Third Edition, CRC Press (2011)], Lighter Side of Adaptive Optics, SPIE Press (2009), and Introduction to Adaptive Optics, SPIE Press (2000) and the editor of ten volumes on adaptive optics. He is also a Fellow of SPIE. Professor Tyson’s current research interests include atmospheric turbulence studies, classical diffraction, novel wavefront sensing, and amplitude and phase manipulation techniques to enhance propagation, laser communications, and imaging.

gr8-2.jpg Benjamin W. Frazier is a Principal Electro-Optical Engineer with AOA Xinetics, a small business unit of Northrop Grumman Aerospace Systems. He has B.S.E.E. and M.S.E.E. degrees from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where he focused on control theory for adaptive optics systems. Frazier has extensive experience with systems integration and testing of beam control systems and components, particularly deformable mirrors and wavefront control systems for high-power and solid state lasers. He currently supports multiple programs in systems engineering, integration and test, data analysis, and performance assessment.
