Jeffrey O. White

Honoring Jacques Collet, Lab. d'Analyse et d'Arch. des Systèmes, Toulouse

Submitted by Jeffrey O. White, Army Res. Lab (ret'd)

Jacques mentored many young researchers at the LAAS, and collaborators around the world. In 1994, he hosted me in Toulouse, un séjour inoubliable, where I saw his genius first hand. How can one person make important contributions to low-temperature solid-state physics, ps laser-semiconductor interactions, optical interconnects, self-organization, parallel processing, and secure computation? En plus, il a une appréciation extraordinaire pour la musique, et un sens d'humeur sans pareil.
