Gordon D Love is a optics researcher and Professor of physics at Durham University, U.K.[1] He is noted for work in Adaptive Optics,[2][3] Liquid Crystals,[4] and switchable lenses. He is also known for being one of the pioneers of applying adaptive optics in industry and medicine[5] (as opposed to astronomy and military optics).

He is a Council Member of the Institute of Physics,[6] and past board member of the European Optical Society.
