Gordon Day

Dr. Gordon Day

The Photonics Society congratulates Past President Dr. Gordon Day on his election as 2011 IEEE President Elect. Gordon Day received B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois. For 33 years he conducted and managed research at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, participating in some of the Institute’s best known programs in optoelectronics: optical fiber communications, optical fiber sensors, laser radiometry, and a determination of the speed of light that led eventually to a redefinition of the meter. In 1994 he became the first Division Chief of the NIST Optoelectronics Division. He is an IEEE Fellow and has had a long and distinguished career serving our Society. In addition to serving as LEOS/Photonics Society President in 2000, he was an IEEE Congressional Fellow in 2005, serving as a science advisor to Senator Jay Rockefeller, and most recently served as IEEE-USA President in 2009.
     Congratulations Gordon!
