Profile Summary
Eustace L. Dereniak is a Professor of Optical Sciences and Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ. He is a co-author of several textbooks including Optical Radiation Detectors, Infrared Detectors and Systems, published by Wiley-Interscience, and Geometrical and Trigometrical Optics, published by Cambridge Press. He has written chapters in Imaging in Medicine, edited by S. Nudelman and D. Patton, related to research and development using thermograph instrumentation for the early detection of breast cancer. His publications also include over 100 authored or co-authored refereed articles. He is a Fellow of the SPIE and OSA, and a President of SPIE in 2012.

Dr. Dereniak received a BS in electrical engineering at Michigan Technological University, MS in Electrical Engineering from University of Michigan and a PhD in optics from the University of Arizona.

He has taught at West Point Military Academy on sabbatical as well as summer courses at the University of Michigan, New Mexico State University and University of Central Florida. He has also worked summer faculty positions at:
