Apologies if you’ve already seen this on the old forum – James suggested I should also post to the new forum.
Jeff Hecht – author of “City of Light: The Story of Fiber Optics” – is interested in identifying the young researcher in one of the pictures on Richard Epworth’s Optical Fibre History website. The picture in question is below, but if that doesn’t make it through to you, it is picture 10 on http://opticalfibrehistory.co.uk/images/rogues-gallery/, captioned “Who is this? examining light propagation through single-mode fibre.”
If you have any idea regarding the identity of the person in the picture, please contact Jeff directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
