Rick Trebino is the Georgia Research Alliance-Eminent Scholar Chair of Ultrafast Optics in the School of Physics at Georgia Tech. He obtained his Ph.D. at Stanford University and has specialized in the measurement of ultrashort laser pulses for the last decade. He is the co-inventor of the FROG techniques as well as other techniques for measuring pulses.
