U.S. market for over-the-counter securities. Established in 1971 by the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), NASDAQ is an automated quotation system that reports on : IMCI IMCI Integrated Management of Childhood Illness ), today announced that Leon Cooper Leon Nathan Cooper (born February 28, 1930) is an American physicist and winner of the 1972 Nobel Prize for Physics, along with John Bardeen and John Robert Schrieffer, for his role in developing the BCS theory (named for their initials) of superconductivity, work he did in his , Ph.D., has joined Spectra Science as the Chairman of its Science Advisory Board.
Dr. Cooper, Thomas J. Watson Sr. Professor of Science at Brown University, has had a distinguished career in the scientific community. He is a world-class physicist whose work in superconductivity superconductivity, abnormally high electrical conductivity of certain substances. The phenomenon was discovered in 1911 by Kamerlingh Onnes, who found that the resistance of mercury dropped suddenly to zero at a temperature of about 4.2°K;. earned him the Nobel Prize Nobel Prize, award given for outstanding achievement in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, peace, or literature. The awards were established by the will of Alfred Nobel, who left a fund to provide annual prizes in the five areas listed above. in 1972. In 1968, he was awarded the Comstock Prize and, in the mid-1970s, Dr. Cooper received The Award of Excellence from Columbia University and Descartes Medal from Academie de Paris, Universite Rene Descartes. In 1985, Columbia College conferred on Dr. Cooper the John Jay Award, and in 1990, he received the Award for Distinguished Achievement from Columbia University. He currently holds seven honorary doctorates.
"Leon Cooper combines a powerful and world recognized scientific intellect with a keen commercial sense," said Nabil Lawandy, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of Spectra Science. "His affiliation with Spectra will be an important asset in guiding our technology as well as validating our products to the business and investment community. We are extremely excited to have him on board."
Dr. Cooper has also made important contributions to the field of intelligent software that have been commercialized by Nestor, Inc., a company he co-founded. Nestor's adaptive pattern-recognition and risk-assessment systems, simulated in small conventional computers and in a Nestor Intel chip, learn by example to accurately classify complex patterns such as targets in sonar, radar, or imaging systems, and to emulate human decisions in various situations.
Dr. Cooper is also Founder and Director of Brown University's Institute for Brain and Neural Systems. The Institute devoted to the study of brain function and neural systems, brings together an international group of students, drawing on the worlds of biology, psychology, mathematics, engineering, physics, linguistics and computer science. The Institute's objective is to pave the way for the next generation of cognitive pharmaceuticals and intelligent systems for use in electronics, automobiles, and communications.
Dr. Cooper said, "I look forward to joining Spectra Science, a company that is poised to develop and rapidly commercialize breakthrough platform technology in the field of optical physics. I am honored to be joining the Science Advisory Board, which is comprised of several world-renowned experts spanning a number of scientific disciplines."
Spectra Science's Advisory Board is comprised of recognized experts in physics, electrical engineering, biology and medicine, reflecting the breadth and scope of the company's core technologies.
