Henry C. Kapteyn, Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer

Henry C. Kapteyn is co-founder of KMLabs Inc and Co-Chairman of the board. Henry is well-established as a leading researcher in the area of ultrafast optical science, and is Professor of Physics and a fellow of JILA, a joint NIST/University institute at the University of Colorado at Boulder. He received a BS from Harvey Mudd College in 1982, an MS from Princeton University in 1984, and a Ph.D. in Physics from the University of California at Berkeley in 1989. He and his wife and long-term collaborator, Margaret Murnane, are well known for their research in femtosecond lasers, and for understanding how to coherently upconvert this light to make a “tabletop x-ray laser” that they have applied to pioneering studies of material behavior at short length- and time-scales. He has published more than 200 papers (h-index 88), and is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, the Optical Society of America, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. His awards include the Adolph Lomb Medal of the OSA in 1993, the Ahmed Zewail Award of the ACS in 2009, the R.W.
