Profile Summary

Alexandra Artusio-Glimpse completed her Doctorate in Imaging Science in 2016 at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Her research interests encompass applications of radiation pressure. In 2012, she became a Fellow of the NSF Graduate Research Program in support of her dissertation research at RIT. In this work, she studied optical wings, cambered refractive micro-objects that fly when illuminated with a beam of light, under the advisement of Dr. Grover Swartzlander. This work led to collaborations with NASA centers working on the possibility of controlled propellantless propulsion in space. In 2010, Aly received her Bachelor’s of Science in Imaging and Photographic Technology also at RIT, where she focused on both modern and historical photographic measurement processes. She held many positions with the SPIE and OSA Student Chapters at RIT as well as the local Rochester OSA Section during her time as a PhD student. Today, Aly is an NRC Postdoc Fellow at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Boulder, CO, where she is developing a new class of laser power meters based on radiation pressure.
