Dr. Concetto R. Giuliano, a member of the scientific and professional cadre of senior executives, is Senior Scientist for Nonlinear Optics, Directed Energy Directorate, Air Force Research Laboratory, Kirtland Air Force Base, N.M. He is responsible for planning, conducting and coordinating theoretical and experimental studies in the field of nonlinear optics and lasers. He coordinates scientific advances with military technical requirements and guides research and development programs. 

Dr. Giuliano spent most of his career at the Hughes Research Laboratories, where he conducted basic and applied research in the fields of lasers and nonlinear optics. He has made many fundamental contributions and gained international recognition in fields such as the physics of optical phase conjugation, and its application to adaptive optics and laser power scaling; self-focusing of light; laser-induced damaged to transparent dielectrics; stimulated Brillouin and Raman scattering; nonlinear absorption of light, and its application to saturable absorbers and optical limiters; and reversible photodissociative lasers.

Dr. Giuliano began his Air Force civil service career in August 1995. Prior to joining Phillips Laboratory, now the Air Force Research Laboratory, he worked at the University of New Mexico as Director of the Alliance for Photonic Technology. After joining the AFRL, Dr. Giuliano led a study to identify military applications of lasers in and through space. He also served as Director of the High Performance Computing Software Applications Institute for Space Situational Awareness, located at the Maui High Performance Computing Center in Hawaii. The Software Applications Institutes were created in 2005 by the Office of the Secretary of Defense High Performance Computing Modernization Program Office with the goal of expanding the utilization of super computers to a broader community through the development of user-friendly software applications.
