Abstract

J. A. Dobrowolski, or George, as he was known to his friends and colleagues, passed away on February 12, 2013 in Ottawa, Ontario. George was a leading pioneer in the field of optical thin films. His work stretched over 60 years beginning with his graduate studies in 1953, and he impacted all areas of research in this field. This in memoriam outlines both his professional career and personal life; as befitting George, there is a comprehensive list of his numerous publications in books, papers, and patents. An in memoriam talk on George’s life and career was presented at the 2013 Optical Interference Coatings Conference held in Whistler, B.C., Canada on June 16–21, 2013.
