About the author (1999)

After doing his Ph.D. thesis on the luminescent properties of thulium at UC Berkeley, Philippe joined Bell Laboratories in 1986 where he contributed to the development of erbium doped fiber amplifiers. He has also done extensive research in the femtosecond laser field, and was a member of the Bell Labs research group which generated the world record shortest laser pulse. He was awarded the 1994 NASTS award for his contributions to the development of the erbium fiber amplifier. He is a member of the OSA and the IEEE. After a recent stint directing strategy for Lucent Technologies corporate strategy group, Philippe is now Business and Marketing Director for Lucent Technologies Advanced Lightwave Systems.

Anders received his Ph.D. from Cornell in 1982, the joined Bell Laboratories where he became active in lightwave component research. He did pioneering work in WDM systems as well as in the development of semiconductor amplifiers and amplified transmission systems, from both a theoretical and experimental standpoint. Anders has been Chief Technical Officer of AT&T’s Optoelectronics Business Unit, and is now Executive Director of Advanced Lightwave Systems at Lucent Technologies. Anders is a Fellow of the OSA and a senior member of the IEEE.

Jay has a Ph.D. from Rutgers University, studying defects in glass structure. He has spent 25 years with Bell Laboratories where he became a Distinguished Member of Staff. Jay was an early pioneer in many aspects of specialty fiber fabrication (polarization maintaining fiber, rare earth doped fibers). Jay is a member of the OSA. He is currently with Lucent Technologies Advanced Technologies division. Jay holds 13 patents and over 80 publications in the field of optical fibers.
