Public colloquium – Lute Maleki – Timing Metrology: Linking science and technology for societal benefits

September 27, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Speaker: Dr. Lute Maleki (OEWaves Inc.)

Title: Timing Metrology: Linking science and technology for societal benefits



Dr. Lute Maleki is a Founder, and President and CEO of OEwaves, Inc. The Company is focused on the development of photonic components and subsystems for advanced sensors and communication systems and quantum technology.  In 2014, he co-founded and served as the CTO of Strobe, a LiDAR company spun out of OEwaves and acquired by GM/Cruise in 2017.  He joined GM/Cruise for the following two years to lead the development of LiDAR sensors.

Prior to joining OEwaves in 2007, Lute was a Senior Research Scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) where he created and led the Quantum Sciences and Technologies Group.

His technical areas of interest at JPL included development of atomic clocks based on ion traps and laser cooled trapped atoms; ultra-stable photonic oscillators; the opto-electronic oscillator (OEO); photonic signal distribution systems; study and development of whispering gallery mode micro-resonators and their applications; development of sensors based on atom wave interferometers; and tests of fundamental physics with atomic clocks. He is an inventor of over 70 U.S. Patents and applications, and has authored and co-authored over 130 refereed publications, and over 200 conference proceedings.  Dr. Maleki is a Life Fellow of IEEE, a Fellow of the American Physical Society, and a Fellow of the Optical Society of America (now Optica). He holds B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics. He received the IEEE Rabi Award, IEEE Sawyer Award and NASA’s Exceptional Engineering Achievement Medal for the development of the Trapped Ion Frequency Standard.
