Dr. Thomas Giallorenzi ..., 14 Oct 2014 [cached]
Dr. Thomas Giallorenzi received his B.S in. Engineering Physics, MS and Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Cornell University. After graduation, he worked as a member of the Technical Staff, General Telephone & Electronics Laboratory. He joined the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in late 1970 and served in several positions. In 1978, he was appointed as Superintendent of the Optical Sciences Division, a position he served in for 28 years before retiring in 2006. He served as a Senior Scientist in the Naval Center for Space Technology (2007-2009) and from 2007 until the present, he is serving as the Senior Director for Science at the Optical Society of America and serves as a consultant to NRL and several Corporations.
During his long career, DrGiallorenzi performed much of the pioneering research in optical fiber sensor, fiber communications systems now in use on numerous DOD platforms, and terrestrial and undersea links, in EO/IR focal plane development and implementation in missiles, threat warning, and wide area surveillance systems. At NRL, he also managed the largest R&D Electro-Optical Organization in the Navy, determined new technical areas of endeavor, developed new programs to advance the technology base for the Navy.
He was often called upon as an expert consultant to advise various government agencies on Electro-Optical and Space Technology issues. His work has been recognized through being awarded numerous awards.
Dr. Giallorenzi was very active in professional society activities including; Editor-In-Chief, IEEE/OSA Journal of LightwaveTechnology; Associate Editor, IEEE Lightwave Communications System Magazine, IEEE Proceedings, and OSA Applied Optics. He was general, and program chairs for over a dozen technical conferences and a member of the program committees of over 30 other conferences.
He served as President, IEEE Laser & Electro-Optics Society, Vice President Publications, and as a member, Board of Governors and on the Technical Council of the Optical Society of America, and numerous other boards.

Tom Giallorenzi, OSA's Science Advisor interviewed Jonathan Wierer, Sandia National Laboratories, USA, Photonics, Subcommittee Chair, S&I 15 to find out about some of the trends for this year's hot paper submissions.
Tom Giallorenzi: Can you review the talks that you got and were there any themes or any outstanding trends that you were able to discern?
Tom Giallorenzi: And did you get any papers on energy efficiency?
Tom Giallorenzi: Could you characterize the energy program at CLEO this year?
Tom Giallorenzi: Why would somebody in the energy field want to come and hear some of these talks?
Tom Giallorenzi: When you say that we can implement it, are they in commercial products?
Tom Giallorenzi: And how much of a difference do they make?
Tom Giallorenzi: What are some of the big reasons you think I should attend my CLEO?
Tom Giallorenzi: Thank you very much.

Thomas Giallorenzi, director of the Optical Sciences Division of the Naval Research Laboratory (Washington, D.C.), described the use of fiberoptic sensing arrays in military intruder detection, which has been going on for the past 30 years.
In terms of protecting buildings and infrastructure from unauthorized intruders, Giallorenzi described a Mach-Zehnder interferometer-based system in which an acoustic or magnetic disturbance alters the signal traveling through an optical fiber, thereby alerting nearby camera systems to check for intruders."People are trying to develop software packages to go with the cameras to detect motion, to track people, to do face recognition, to do more sophisticated things with existing optical technologies," he said.
Improvements in optical technology are also making cameras and detectors less expensive, but costs will have to drop a great deal further for wide-scale civilian surveillance."The nice thing about the military at least is that we can concentrate things in bases," Giallorenzi said.
