Roger Hall Stolen recently joined the Department as a professor. Stolen is a 30 year veteran of Bell Laboratories, and spent the past two years as a principal member of the technical staff of AT&T Research Labs, Holmdel, N.J.

His fields of major interest are: fiber nonlinear optics, polarization-preserving optical fibers, and optical fiber components and devices.

Stolen is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and the Optical Society of America. He also received the Wood Prize in 1990 for optical nonlinearities in fibers and for demonstrating polarization-preserving fibers.

He received his bachelor's degree from Olaf College in 1959 and his Ph.D. in solid state physics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1965. Following his doctorate, he served as a post doctoral fellow at the University of Toronto until 1966.

He was named the topical editor for the Journal of the Optical Society of America from 1986 until 1993 and the special co-editor of the journal's issue on nonlinear guided waves optics in February of 1988.

He holds 15 patents and an additional three are pending. He is the author or co-author of more than 100 publications, and has served on numerous program committees for conferences in his field.
