F. J. Duarte is an award winning laser physicist. He is the author of the generalized multiple-prism-grating dispersion theory and has discovered a series of tunable laser oscillator configurations. His physics has been applied to a spectrum of fields from medical imaging to the nuclear industry. Duarte is currently working on high-power multiple-prism-grating laser oscillators, the physics of prismatic pulse compression, the foundations of quantum entanglement, and on the application of Dirac's quantum notation to classical optics. He is also doing research on very large N-slit laser interferometers for secure space-to-space interferometric communications and detection of clear air turbulence in terrestrial environments. Duarte's research physics career began at Macquarie University (where he was a student of the highly-regarded quantum physicist John C. Ward) and continues in the US where he has worked for the academic, industrial, and defense sectors.
