Name Change and Broadened Focus for Optics at Oregon
The Oregen Center for Optical, Molecular and Quantum Science (formerly Oregon Center for Optics) has broadened it's focus and membership. The center seeks to expand beyond optical science into spectroscopy, quantum science and more interdisciplinary optics related research and teaching. The center has added new members in chemistry and physics. New additions include Cathy Wong, assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry, George Nazin, assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry, Benjamin Aleman, assistant professor of Physics. New UO faculty recruit Brian Smith, formerly of Oxford University, will also join the center in Summer 2016.
