Honoring Prof. Jannick Rolland, University of Rochester

Submitted by Prof. Dr. Chandra Roychoudhuri, University of Connecticut

My first scientific encounter with Prof. Jannick Rolland was at an OSA annual conference at Rochester few years ago. I was presenting a poster paper on the deeper implications of Non-Interaction of Wave (NIW) amplitudes for the prevailing coherence theory. Instead of walking away with benign neglect; Jannick took time to understand the implications and corrected a sloppy mistake based on the NIW-proposition. I was deeply moved by her quick grasp of NIW and her friendly help in correcting me.
