John Ballato of Clemson University said that making an optical fiber-based laser is equivalent to funneling a million laser pointers into an optical fiber the thickness of a hair. “As the intensity of the light gets brighter in that fiber, the glass begins to say ‘uncle,’” Ballato said. “It’s not a surprise the materials are […]
Lin Zhu is receiving $1.4 million from the Department of Defense to address one of the central factors that keep diode lasers from becoming efficient, high-energy weapons. Zhu, an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, said his goal is to produce a light beam that has high power but that also goes in one […]

Kate Gasparro said that when she thinks about her success, she goes back to the first conversation she had with fellow Clemson University alumnus Bob Hambright. Gasparro remembered she was applying for a leadership award that bears Hambright’s name when he impressed upon her the importance of self-examination, a lesson she took to heart. She went on to win the Norris Medal, the highest honor for an undergraduate at Clemson, and is now a Ph.D. student at Stanford University.
