Bio/Hist Note Craig A. Hoffman is superintendent of the Optical Sciences Division of the US Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), and a member of the Senior Executive Service. Dr. Hoffman came to the NRL in 1979 as a National Research Council post-doctoral fellow and joined the NRL staff as a research physicist in 1981. He became the associate superintendent of the NRL Optical Sciences Division in 1998, and served as acting superintendent of the division from February 2007 to March 2008 and from October 2013 to October 2014. As a member of the NRL research staff, Dr. Hoffman received Navy Meritorious Unit Commendation Awards in 1996 and 2006. Widely published, Dr. Hoffman is a fellow of the OSA and a member of IEEE, SPIE, Sigma Xi, and Phi Beta Kappa. He holds a BS in physics from Purdue University, and an MS and Ph.D in physics from Brown University. Ronald G. Driggers is CEO of St. Johns Optical Systems, a retired US naval reserve officer, and editor-in-chief of Applied Optics. Previously, he was superintendent of the Optical Sciences Division of the US Naval Research Laboratory and a member of the Senior Executive Service. Before that, he was director of the Modeling and Simulation Division at the US Army's Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD), and worked briefly as chief of the Electro-Optics and Photonics Division at the Army Research Laboratory. He was selected as the 2002 Army Materiel Command's Engineer of the Year; 2001 Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center Technical Employee of the Year; 2001 NVESD Technical Employee of the Year; and 2001 Naval Engineering Duty Officer of the Year.

Summary "The first edition of the Encyclopedia of Optical and Photonic Engineering provided a valuable reference concerning devices or systems that generate, transmit, measure, or detect light, and to a lesser degree, the basic interaction of light and matter. This Second Edition not only reflects the changes in optical and photonic engineering that have occurred since the first edition was published, but also:Boasts a wealth of new material, expanding the encyclopedias length by 25 percentContains extensive updates, with significant revisions made throughout the textFeatures contributions from engineers and scientists leading the fields of optics and photonics todayWith the addition of a second editor, the Encyclopedia of Optical and Photonic Engineering, Second Edition offers a balanced and up-to-date look at the fundamentals of a diverse portfolio of technologies and discoveries in areas ranging from x-ray optics to photon entanglement and beyond. This editions release corresponds nicely with the United Nations General Assemblys declaration of 2015 as the International Year of Light, working in tandem to raise awareness about lights important role in the modern world.
