Russell Dean Dupuis (born 1947) is the Steve W. Chaddick Endowed Chair in Electro-Optics in the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Georgia Tech. He has made pioneering contributions to metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) and continuous-wave room-temperature quantum-well lasers.[1] His other work has focused on III-V heterojunction devices, and LEDs.


Dupuis earned his B.S. (1970), his M.S. (1971), and his Ph.D. (1972) in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.[1]

Awards and memberships[edit]

A Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar, Dupuis and two of his colleagues were awarded the 2002 National Medal of Technology by President George W. Bush for their work on developing and commercializing LEDs.[2] He won the 1985 IEEE Morris N. Liebmann Memorial Award. In 2015, Dupuis and four others shared the Charles Stark Draper Prize in Engineering given by the U.S. National Academy of Engineering.[3] He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and is a Fellow of the IEEE, the American Physical Society, the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Optical Society of America.

Russell D. Dupuis won the 2004 John Bardeen Award [4] and the 2007 IEEE Edison Medal.[1][5]
