Al Freundorfer



Dr. Al P. Freundorfer, P.Eng. (M'90) received the B.A.Sc., M.A.Sc. and Ph.D. degree all from the University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada in 1981, 1983 and 1989 respectively.

While at University of Toronto, he worked on a unique ground penetrating radar (GPR) for three dimensional imaging of buried objects. This radar could also be mounted on a helicopter for sea ice thickness measurements.

For his post doctorate, he worked in the areas of non-linear optics of organic crystals, optical reflectometry and optical signal processing. On joining the Department of Electrical Engineering at Queen's University, he invented a coherent optical vector network analyzer, which is an instrument similar to a microwave vector network analyzer but at optical frequencies. Currently he is working in the area of Wireless Circuits.
