Preprints/reprints of some recent papers.
My Ph.D. thesis, covering several computational and experimental methods
I developed to engineer lasers producing ultra short pulses.
Need to measure the electric field of an optical pulse lasting a few femtoseconds?
My condolences. But this might help.
My SM thesis, covering an algorithm for solving directly for the steady state pulse of a nonlinear cavity
with relatively weak nonlinearity, such as a solid-state femtosecond laser. (There's also a short summary paper.)
The solution is typically found at least 10 times faster than with standard simulations.
Code for the fast optimization and analysis of dispersion from dielectric mirrors.
Used for designing components for ultrafast optical systems and optical communications.
Home page of our research group.
Mostly containing photos of interest to family and friends.
Not a blog! I prefer "online collection of informal essays."
Some photos from back when I had time to fly.
My public directory on the MIT computing system, Athena, containing
a constantly changing set of items of random interest.
A short visual illustration of the various diffraction approximations,
intended for people already familiar with linear systems.
Equations of all types, arranged by MIT class.
