James P. Gordon Memorial Speakership
Established in 2014 with the support of the Gordon family, The James P. Gordon Memorial Endowment will fund a speakership on Quantum Information and Quantum Optics to a CLEO invited speaker.
The recipient’s presentation will be recorded and made available online as an educational resource for the next generation of optics and photonics leaders. This program is a tribute to Dr. Gordon for his outstanding contributions in the field of Quantum Optics.
This speakership will pay tribute to Dr. Gordon for his numerous high-impact contributions to quantum electronics and photonics, including demonstration of the maser. The video library will provide a unique education resource for the next generation of optics and photonics innovators. Please support Jim’s legacy and contribute to the fund today.
