Honoring Bahaa Saleh, UCF - CREOL

Submitted by David Scherer, Microsemi

This gift is in honor of my undergraduate adviser, Dr. Bahaa Saleh. Bahaa is a caring, thoughtful, and meticulous scientist who taught me the importance of understanding all the different parts in an experiment and how they fit together. I still remember fondly our meetings about my undergraduate work in the Quantum Imaging Lab at BU, which spurred me on to complete a Ph.D. in the field. I could not have asked for a better mentor to learn the basics of optics and photonics so early in my career.
