Immigrants Of The Week: Charles Kao, and William Boyle

by Greg Siskind

IMMIGRANTS OF THE DAY: CHARLES KAO AND WILLIAM BOYLE - 2009 NOBEL LAUREATES IN PHYSICS

I'm back from Spain and as you can see from the flurry of posts from last night and this morning, I'm catching up on some of the items I wanted to note in the blog. Some of you commented about today's Immigrants of the Day already, but it's worth recognizing them in a separate post.

 
Chinese-born Charles Kao was recognized for his contributions to the development of fiber optic technology. He has worked in academia and in the private sector over the years including working at Yale and ITT Corporation. 

 
Canadian-born Willard Boyle was cited for "the invention of an imaging semiconductor circuit—the CCD sensor". He has been retired for many years, but was recognized for his work in the 60s and 70s at Bell Labs.
