About the Author
Vladimir M. Kozenkov graduated from the Moscow Energetic Institute as a scientist in applied physical optics (laser department). For 30 years he worked at the Organic Intermediates and Dyes Institute (NIOPIK) in Moscow. He pioneered research and development of various organic photosensitive materials for holography, waveguide, integral and polarization optics, stereolithography, optical memory, imaging processing, and security applications. He was the first to discover the phenomenon of photoinduced birefringence in polyvinyl-cinnamate films in 1977. He has published more than 100 refereed papers and holds more than 50 patents.
Hoi-Sing Kwok obtained his PhD degree in applied physics from Harvard University in 1978. He joined the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1980 and became a full professor in 1985. He joined HKUST in 1992 an is currently Director of the Center for Display Research (www.cdr.ust.hk). Professor Kwok has written over 500 refereed publications and holds 40 patents in laser optics and LCD technologies. He is a Fellow of the OSA, the IEEE, and the SID.
