Michael D. Fayer is the David Mulvane Ehrsam and Edward Curtis Franklin Professor of Chemistry at Stanford University, Calif., U.S.A. Fayer’s work has been crucial in the development and application of ultrafast nonlinear laser techniques for the study of complex molecular systems.

He received the 2012 Arthur L. Schawlow Prize from the American Physical Society for his contributions to laser science in the development of ultrafast nonlinear and multidimensional vibrational spectroscopy. Fayer will be accepting the prestigious award and giving a plenary address during the Frontiers in Optics (FiO) meeting on 15 October 2012, in Rochester, N.Y., U.S.A.
