Stephen M. Schultz received B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from Brigham Young University, Provo, UT, in 1992 and 1994, respectively. He received a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, GA, in 1999. He worked at Raytheon Missile Systems from 1999-2001. He has taught at Brigham Young University since 2002 and is currently a Full Professor.
He is the director of the fiber devices laboratory at Brigham Young University. His research interests are in the area of optical fiber devices with an emphasis on optical fiber based sensors. He
has developed fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensor technology for high
temperature applications, strain sensing, bend sensing, and chemical
sensing. He has developed compact and high speed electronics systems for FBG sensor interrogation. He has also developed electric field sensors using optical fiber.
