Black History Fact Of The Day
Peter J. Delfyett developed "the worlds fastest, most powerful modelocked semiconductor laser diode." [SIDEBAR: Don't ask me what that is or how it functions. Lol.] In 2004, Dr. Delfyett was named one of the 50 Most Important Blacks in Research Science by Science Spectrum Magazine and Career Communications Group. He has also received: The National Science Foundations Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, The 1999 University Distinguished Researcher of the Year Award, The 2000 Black Engineer of the Year Award, and the 2000 Excellence in Graduate Teaching Award.
