Royal observer
HRH Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, visited the Photonics Center on September 21, shortly after his arrival in Boston for a five-day stay. Photonics Center Director Donald Fraser accompanied him on a tour of the center. Prince Andrew, who has a long-standing interest in technology, is pictured in the Picosecond Spectronomy Lab at a probe station that tests resonant cavity enhanced photo detectors. The photo detectors are used to improve the quality of optical fiber-based communication. Looking on is Selim Unlu, an associate professor in ENG's Electrical and Computer Engineering Department.
