Robert Hopkins, ‘Father of Optical Engineering,’ Dies at 94
Robert Hopkins, who was one of the first scientists to use the computer as a tool for designing optical systems and also among the first to recognize the important role the laser would play in the future of subjects like solid state physics and quantum physics, died July 4 at age 94. The University flag will be lowered today in his honor.
