ECE Professor Carmen Menoni recently was named to the Board of Governors for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Lasers and Electro-Optics Society (LEOS). Menoni, whose term is effective through 2008, is one of four newly elected board members.
"I continue to be impressed with Carmen's achievements," says Tony Maciejewski, ECE department head. "She has played an integral role in the success of the EUV ERC, and I know she will make an outstanding addition to the IEEE LEOS Board of Governors."
The IEEE LEOS focuses on lasers, optical devices, optical fibers, and associated lightwave technology and their applications in systems and subsystems in which quantum electronic devices are key elements. Menoni has been actively involved with the Society since joining the ECE Department.
"I am excited about serving on the IEEE-LEOS Board of Governors," says Menoni. "I want to help the Board reach out to students and inspire them with the interest and passion that we share in the science and technology of lasers and electro-optics."
Menoni has been extensively involved with the IEEE for several years, serving as the associate editor for the IEEE Journal of Quantum Electronics since 2000 and the faculty adviser of the IEEE Student Branch at Colorado State University since 1999. She previously served as the chair of the IEEE-LEOS Denver Chapter and was a member of the IEEE-LEOS Distinguished Lecturers Selection Committee in 2005. Menoni was also the co-chair of the Semiconductor Lasers for Lightwave Communications Symposium in 2002 and 2003 at the Conference on Laser and Electro-Optics and SPIE ITCom.
