John P. Russell received the B.Sc. in physics from Queens University, Belfast, N. Ireland in 1958 and the D. Phil. from the University of Oxford, England, in 1962. After a year of post-doctoral research at Oxford, he joined RRE Malvern in 1963, where he worked on light scattering in solids. In 1967 he joined RCA Laboratories, Zurich. There he continued his work on light scattering, making the first observation of raman scattering in solids with laser sources. Later he participated in the development of the Holocard system and color encoded F-I-H for micropublishing. In 1974, he transferred to RCA Laboratories, Princeton, N.J., where he has worked on the development of optical readers and recorders for the RCA VideoDisc system.
Dr. Russell received RCA Laboratories Achievement Awards in 1969 and in 1977. He is a member of the Institute of Physics (GB), the European Physical Society, and the American Optical Society.
