Page_134_Rect_1.jpg William B. Spillman, Jr., is a retired Associate Professor of Physics at Virginia Tech. He received his A.B. in Math-Physics from Brown University in 1968 and his M.S. and Ph.D. in Physics from Northeastern University in 1972 and 1977, respectively. Prior to his academic career, he worked as a scientist, research manager, and director of research for Sperry Corp., Geo-Centers, Inc., Hercules, Inc., and the Goodrich Corp., among others. He is the co-author/editor of 7 books and more than 180 technical publications. He also holds 46 US patents. In 1997, he was elected a Fellow of SPIE, and in 2000 he received a SPIE recognition award for his society activities in smart structures and materials. He was elected a Fellow and Chartered Physicist in 2001 and a Chartered Scientist in 2004 by the Institute of Physics in the UK. In February 2006, he received a Lifetime Achievement Award from SPIE for his research and professional activities in smart materials and structures. He has been active in the field of fiber optic sensing since its inception, with numerous publications and patents.

Page_134_Rect_2.jpg Eric Udd is President of Columbia Gorge Research, a company he founded to promote fiber optic sensor technology and its applications. He has been involved in the field of fiber optic sensors since 1977, with fundamental contributions to fiber rotation, acceleration, acoustic, pressure, vibration, strain, temperature, humidity and corrosion sensors. At McDonnell Douglas (1977–1993), he managed over 30 government and commercial programs on fiber optic sensors that resulted in products used on the 777 and other commercial aircraft, launch vehicles, and spacecraft. In 1993, Udd founded Blue Road Research, working on civil structures, oil and gas projects, aerospace, and defense. In January 2006, he began full-time work at Columbia Gorge Research and developed new applications in the electric power and medical fields, as well as aerospace and defense.

Udd has 48 issued US Patents, with additional applications pending. He has written over 150 papers, chaired more than 30 international conferences on fiber sensors, edited textbooks, and contributed many book chapters. He is a McDonnell Douglas Fellow, an SPIE Fellow, and an OSA Fellow. He was awarded the David Richardson Medal by OSA in 2009 for his work on fiber optic sensors and the field of fiber optic smart structures.
