George Stegeman received his PhD from
the University of Toronto and is the first recipient of the Cobb Family
Chair in Optical Sciences and Engineering. The principal interest of Dr.
Stegeman's research group is the experimental study of nonlinear optics
in waveguide structures, especially the properties of spatial solitons
in various regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Of particular
interest are solitons in photonic crystals, in semiconductor optical
amplifiers, in quasi-phase-matched doubling crystals and in the discrete
systems afforded by coupled arrays of channel waveguides. He is a Fellow
of the Optical Society of America and has received the Hertzberg Medal
for Achievement in Physics of the Canadian Association of Physicists and
the R. Woods Prize of the Optical Society of America.
