page68-1.jpg Robert K. Tyson is an Associate Professor of Physics and Optical Science at The University of North Carolina at Charlotte. He is a Fellow of SPIE – The International Society for Optical Engineering. 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 he was a senior scientist with Schafer Corporation until 1999. He is the author of Principles of Adaptive Optics (Academic Press, 1st edition 1991, 2nd edition 1998) and Introduction to Adaptive Optics (SPIE Press, 2000) and the editor of ten volumes on adaptive optics. 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.

page68-2.jpg Benjamin West Frazier is an Associate Electrical Engineer with Xinetics, Inc. in Devens, MA. He received his MSEE and BSEE degrees from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where he focused on robust H-infinity control of adaptive optics systems. His current duties include the development of real-time closed-loop adaptive optics systems and the implementation of an automated testing process for qualifying deformable mirrors.
