Chairman of the Board D & Y Laboratories
Dr. Lo received his Bachelor of Science in Physics from the University of Illinois in 1962 with highest honors and his PhD in Physics from the University of Chicago in 1966 under the theory group lead by (2008) Physics Nobel recipient Yoichiro Nambu. (Dr. Nambu is considered as one of the leading figures in the development of modern particle physics.)
Dr. Lo’s academic career spans the globe as a visiting faculty member and lecturer at leading institutions throughout the world including: California Institute of Technology; Academy of Science, Beijing, China; Stanford Accelerated Center, California; Institute of Theoretical Physics, and State University of New York, Stony Brook, New York.
Dr. Lo was Senior Lecturer (1977-1986), Tenured Lecturer (1975-1977), and Fixed Term Lecturer(1972-1975), at the University of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Dr. Lo has published over 75 scientific papers in internationally recognized physics journals during his 40-year distinguished career as well as authored over 60 US and world patents in the field of atomic and subatomic particles. In conjunction with Caltech Pasadena and UCLA, Dr. Lo was the Senior Scientist that led a team of world renown colleagues, including the holder of the John Dawson Award for Excellence in Plasma Physics Research, UCLA Professor Alfred Wong, and world-renowned Field Medalist in Mathematics, Professor S.T. Yau, of Harvard University, in the proof of concept of a revolutionary high-energy beam with multiple communications and energy applications.
This beam, the “Baser”, of which Dr. Lo is the inventor and patent holder, produces a high-energy beam of enlarged particle clusters thousands of times more powerful than the world’s most powerful laser. The US Department of Energy, Office of Technology Development, as well as Los Alamos National Laboratory collaborated with this research. In 2005 the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Roy Glauber at Harvard for the theoretical calculations of optical coherence which was the basis for Dr. Lo’s invention of the Baser.
