Dr. Laszlo Ujj is an Associate Professor of Physics at UWF. He earned a Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Szeged, Hungary, and then spent several years as a research scientist at the University of Arizona before joining UWF. He is a teacher and researcher with solid experimental and theoretical experience. He has published more than 50 papers on nonlinear optics, ultrafast laser spectroscopy and coherent Raman spectroscopy.
Two of his scientific articles reflect ground-breaking results on the laser spectroscopy of photoactive proteins. His findings have appeared in scientific journals and books and have been cited hundreds of times. Recently, he has been contributing to the applications and developments of innovative optical methods such as coherent Raman microscopy, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy, and distributed feedback lasers. He has made numerous presentations to the American Physical Society and other scholarly meetings on such subjects as spectral processing in spectroscopy, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy of metals, and phase retrieval methods in nonlinear spectroscopy and microscopy.
Ujj teaches the entire spectrum of undergraduate physics courses, including thermodynamics, theoretical mechanics, electromagnetic theory, laser physics and quantum theory. He has revised several classes and supervised many students conducting scientific research with international recognition. They include students who subsequently were admitted to Ph.D. programs at Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Arizona and other prestigious graduate schools. Ujj also has been very active in the new Laser Spectroscopy lab at the Hal Marcus School of Sciences and Engineering.
