"Ab Initio" Theory of Novel Micro and Nanolasers

Published on


A. Douglas Stone A. Douglas Stone is currently Carl A. Morse Professor of Applied Physics and Physics at Yale University, and Director of the Division of Physical Sciences. He joined the Yale faculty in 1986, was promoted to Professor in 1990, and from 1997-2003 served as Chairman of the Department of Applied Physics. Previously, he obtained a Master's degree in Physics and Philosophy from Oxford in 1978 (where he was a Rhode's Scholar), a PhD in heoretical condensed matter physics from MIT in 1983, and did postdoctoral work at IBM (1983-1985).

His interests in theoretical physics span condensed matter and optical physics. His groundbreaking work with Patrick Lee on mesoscopic physics and universal conductance fluctuations is one of the most cited works in all of physics from the 1980's and was recognized by the McMillan Award of the University of Illinois at Urbana for “outstanding contributions to condensed matter physics”. For the past decade he has focused much of his research on optics, and specifically on micro cavity optics and laser physics, and holds three patents in these areas. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, and a former Trustee and current General Member of the Aspen Center for Physics. He is currently writing a popular book about Einstein's contributions to quantum theory.
