Biography

James E. Harvey has retired after twenty-one (21) years as an Associate Professor of Optics and Senior Research Staff Member at the Center for Research and Education in Optics and Lasers (CREOL) at the University of Central Florida (UCF). He is currently working part-time as a Senior Optical Engineer for Photon Engineering, LLC in Tucson, AZ. His formal education included an A.B. Degree in Physics from Kansas Wesleyan University, an M.S. Degree in Physics from Wayne State University and a Ph.D. in Optical Sciences from the University of Arizona. He then spent fourteen (14) years working in industry before returning to academia. Dr. Harvey has been extensively involved in various aspects of diffraction and surface scatter phenomena and X-ray/EUV imaging systems. First as a Senior Scientist at the Perkin-Elmer Corporation then continuing at UCF, he worked on a variety of NASA sponsored astronomy programs including AXAF, FUSE, SXI and SUVI. He has recently been concerned with deriving optical fabrication tolerances necessary to satisfy specific image quality requirements. Dr. Harvey is credited with five (5) patents and over two hundred publications and presentations in the areas of diffraction theory, surface scatter phenomena, image analysis, X-ray/EUV imaging systems, phased telescope arrays, adaptive optics, wavefront sensing, beam sampling technology and optical properties of materials. He is a member of the OSA, and a Fellow and former board member of SPIE.
