Honoring L.C. Kimerling, Thomas Lord Professor, DMSE, MIT

Submitted by Anu Agarwal, Principal Research Scientist. MPC, MIT

Prof. Kimerling (Kim) has been my guide and guru during my 20 year research career at MIT. He introduced me to Silicon Microphotonics, a field he pioneered. Sharp as a tack, his incisive questioning leads one right to the heart of a research problem, a publication, or a presentation. His feedback is legendary, and nobody misses this opportunity of being put through the wringer! He has always been a kind and generous mentor - very kind at heart and extremely generous with his time and wisdom.
