Marlan! Your scientific
recognition has no geographical
or political boundaries: the
world famous Quantum Cawboy,
Member of the National Academy of
Sciences, the Academia Europaea,
the Max Planck Society, the
Albert Einstein’s Professor of
the University of Ulm, the
C.N.Yang Visiting Professor of
the Chinese University of Hong
Kong, Medalist of the Senate of
the Czech Republic, and, most
recently, Academician of the
Russian Academy of Sciences. We
are the most happy with this last
honorable distinction coming from
scientists of our native country,
highly appreciating your
fundamental contributions and
learning quantum optics from your
classical textbooks. We are
proud to be the members of your
Texan team! Warmest
congratulations! Olga and Vitaly

Reception in Honor of Prof. Marlan O. Scully On occasion of his election to the Russian Academy of Sciences

Legacy Hall
The Jon L. Hagler Center

401 George Bush Drive

College Station, Texas 77840
5:00 p.m., December 5, 2016

Prof. Marlan O. Scully

Marlan O. Scully received undergraduate training in Engineering Physics and Nuclear Engineering from the University of Wyoming and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and the Ph.D. in Physics from Yale University in 1966. He has held faculty positions at Yale, MIT, University of Arizona, University of New Mexico and the Max-Planck-Institut für Quantenoptik. He presently holds a joint appointment between Texas A&M and Princeton Universities.

He has been instrumental in many seminal contributions to laser science and quantum optics. These include: The Scully-Lamb quantum theory of the laser, the classical theory of the free electron laser, the theory of the laser gyroscope and especially the theory of correlated spontaneous emission noise quenching in such devices, the first demonstration of lasing without inversion and the first utilization of coherence effects to generate ultraslow light in hot gases. Furthermore Scully's work on quantum coherence and correlation effects has shed new light on the foundations of quantum mechanics and yielded new insights into quantum thermodynamics.

He has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, the Academia Europaea, and the Max Planck Society and has received numerous awards including the Charles H. Townes Award of the OSA, the Quantum Electronics Award of IEEE, the Elliott Cresson Medal of the Franklin Institute, the Adolph E. Lomb Medal of the OSA, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Alexander von Humboldt Distinguished Faculty Prize. More recently, he was awarded the OSA Frederic Ives Medal / Quinn Prize which recognizes overall distinction in optics and is the highest award of the society, was named the C.N. Yang Visiting Professor by the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and received the Commemorative Medal of the Senate of the Czech Republic.


The reception will be held on December 5, 2016 at the Jon L. Hagler Center in Legacy Hall.
