About the Author

Roy J. Glauber, born 1925 in New York City, was a student in the 1941 graduating class at the Bronx High School of Science. He worked on the Manhattan Project for two years before obtaining his bachelor's degree and then went on to obtain a Ph.D. from Harvard University, where he is now the Mallinckrodt Professor of Physics while also being an Adjunct Professor of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona. Professor Glauber was awarded the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his contribution to the quantum theory of optical coherence", together with John L. Hall and Theodor W. Hänsch. His groundbreaking research on optical coherence was published in 1963. The most famous contribution of Professor Glauber to physics is the notion and mathematics behind coherent states.
