nd judging process. The result is an elite group whose visions and inventions will shape the future of technology."

DuPont Vice President for Global Research and Development Dr. Uma Chowdhry said, "Maria has brought leadership, entrepreneurial spirit and insight into polymer research and development in support of our new venture in photonics. We are excited about the potential for the emerging technology under development by the Photonics Team led by Maria and its focus on helping bring to market new, integrated optical components that are best-in-class."

Dr. Petrucci-Samija says she is driven by the vision of bringing photonics to the same level that electronics reached some years ago -- the ability to monolithically integrate devices on a single chip. "Every year bandwidth increases, and it shot up tremendously with the advent of the Internet," she said. "It's caused us to take a 90-degree change in perspective in how we view traditional telecommunications applications. This work represents new applications and a whole new arena for photonics technologies. It's an exciting time to be involved in this research."

Dr. Petrucci-Samija will be honored Sept. 29-30 at Technology Review's Emerging Technologies Conference at MIT. The event features keynote talks, panels and discussions on the transformative technological innovations that have the potential to fuel new economic growth and dramatically change the future. In addition to the recognition for Dr. Petrucci-Samija, Dr. Chowdhry will participate in a panel discussion titled, "From Lab to Market: Where Technology is Headed - The Research Director's Point of View." The panel will highlight how computing, biotechnology and chemicals and materials are converging to create new technologies and business opportunities, examining what they mean for three companies, including DuPont, in different but intersecting fields. The 2004 TR100's panel of judges includes senior executives from
