Professor Glenn Boreman

I am Chair of the Department of Physics & Optical Science at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I received my BS in Optics from University of Rochester, and my PhD in Optics from University of Arizona. From 1984 to 2011, I was on the faculty of the University of Central Florida and supervised 25 PhD students to completion. I am coauthor of the graduate textbooks Infrared Detectors and Systems and Infrared Antennas and Resonant Structures, and author of Modulation Transfer Function in Optical & Electro-Optical Systems and Basic Electro-Optics for Electrical Engineers. I’ve published over 190 journal articles in the areas of infrared sensors and materials, optics of random media, and image-quality assessment. In 2017, I had the pleasure of serving as the President of SPIE, the International Society for Optics and Photonics, and am currently a fellow of SPIE, IEEE, OSA, and MSS.
