Carl Baxter Collins Jr.

 

Carl Baxter Collins, age 79, was born to parents Carl Baxter Collins, Sr. and Lela Golden McCoy in San Antonio, Texas on March 4, 1940.  He passed away in the early morning hours of Thursday, August 15, 2019 in Dallas, Texas.

Education

Carl graduated with honors from Breckinridge High School in San Antonio, Texas in 1957. He was involved with many extra-curricular activities, especially related to the sciences. He then enrolled in the University of Texas at Austin. He graduated from the University of Texas, magna cum laude, with a BS in physics. He was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and Siga Pi Sigma, the physics honorary society. He was awarded a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship and a National Science Foundation Fellowship. Following graduation in 1960, Carl married Annabelle Lane, a UT student from Dallas, Texas. They were divorced in 1973. He entered the graduate physics program at University of Texas and earned an MA in 1961. His thesis was entitled, "A study of helium metastable interactions with nitrogen and their application in the detection of 2³s helium atoms". His PhD dissertation, "Selective excitation of spectra in a flowing helium afterglow", was completed in 1963. Both degrees were under the supervision of Professor W. W. Robertson. Collins was a UT Austin physics faculty Instructor in 1964. In 1964, he joined the Southwest Center for Advance Studies, which was incorporated into the University of Texas at Dallas in 1969. He served as head of the graduate program in physics from 1972 to 1975.

Carl B. Collins was the director of the Center for Quantum Electronics at UTD. In 1975, Collins founded the center, which in three years developed two new laser devices. He was a joint-principal investigator with Ioan-Iovitz Popescu of Bucharest University of the U.S.-Romanian Project in Atomic and Plasma Physics from 1971-1981. This project was supported by the National Science Foundation.

Dr. Collins' research involves various aspects of quantum electronics, in particular, high-power laser development, laser spectroscopy, and ultrashort-wavelength lasers. He is a co-discoverer of two U.S. patents on pulsed-power-related technologies and four patents on thin-film diamond produced by the laser ablation source. Dr. Collins was named the 1989 Distinguished Texas Scientist by the Texas Academy of Sciences, and in 1992, he was awarded the degree of Doctor Honoris Causa by the University of Orleans in France. In 1993, he was elected as Honorary Member of the Romanian (National) Academy.

Family

Carl married Doina Borovina on February 1, 1974 in Bucharest, Romania. He was a professor at UT Dallas for more than 40 years. Carl was preceded in death by his daughter, Ann, one month old; sons, Carl Baxter Collins III, 21, and Jeffrey Thomas Collins, 42. He is survived by his wife, Doina Collins; daughter, Jean Scott; and sons, Carl Lane Collins and Jack Scott Collins.Visitation will be on Tuesday, August 20, 2019 from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM at Restland Funeral Home.  Funeral service will take place on Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 3:00 PM in the Abbey Chapel at Restland Memorial Park. Funeral arrangements for Carl Collins have been faithfully entrusted to Restland Funeral Home and Cemetery, which is located at 13005 Greenville Avenue, at the intersection of Restland Road, Dallas, Texas 75243.

Research

Carl had a very impressive research career. His research involved various aspects of quantum electronics, in particular, high-power laser development, laser spectroscopy, and ultrashort-wavelength lasers. He is a co-discoverer of two U.S. patents on pulsed-power-related technologies and four patents on thin-film diamond produced by the laser ablation source. Dr. Collins was named the 1989 Distinguished Texas Scientist by the Texas Academy of Sciences, and in 1992, he was awarded the degree of Doctor Honoris Causa by the University of Orleans in France. In 1993, he was elected as Honorary Member of the Romanian (National) Academy.

One of his principal collaborators was Professor Ioan-Iovitz Popescu Of Romania University. A list of their shared papers is shown below. It was taken from Professor Popescu's webpage.

Here is a list of their principal accomplishments as listed by Professor Popescu.

(1) Introduction of the optogalvanic effect as a new principle for laser spectroscopy by thermionic detection (1964), radio-frequency detection (1980) and detection of laser-induced frequency shift of self-excited ion plasma oscillations (1990), with Acad. Prof. Eugen Badareu, Dr. Denisa Popescu, Prof. Dr. Johannes Richter, Prof. Dr. Carl B. Collins, Prof. Dr. C. Stanciulescu e.t al.

(2) First experimental evidence of multiphoton spectra of free atoms and molecules with tunable lasers (with Dr. Denisa Popescu and Prof. Dr. C.B. Collins, 1973-74)

(3) Discovery of hybrid resonances and state-selective laser photolysis of molecules (with Dr. Denisa Popescu and Prof. Dr. Carl B. Collins, 1974). This two-photon process involving hybrid molecular-atomic resonances appears to be the most efficient for the production of highly excited Rydberg atoms

(4) Introduction of photolytic spectroscopy (with Dr. Denisa Popescu and Prof. Dr. Carl B. Collins, 1980) capable to investigate in detail the predissociation of neutral molecules, the form of the repulsive potential curves and the atomic dissociation states.

(5) First demonstrations of the real possibilities of multiphoton spectroscopy (with Dr. Denisa Popescu and Prof. Dr Carl B. Collins, 1973-1981) which initiated the growth of the field of laser spectroscopy by Excited-State Spectroscopy, Rydberg Spectroscopy, Two-Photon Doppler-Free Spectroscopy, Multiphoton Ionization Spectroscopy and Photolytic Spectroscopy

(6) Pioneering project of optical pumping of gamma-ray lasers which ultimately launched the renaissance of the field (with Prof. Dr. C. B. Collins Dr. S. Olariu, and Prof. Dr. M. Petrascu, 1979-1982)

(7) First experimental evidence of induced gamma emission of a longlived Hafnium-178 isomer showing a highly efficient X-rays to gamma-rays conversion (with Carl B. Collins et al., Phys. Rev. Lett., 82, 695 (1999); 84, 2544 (2000); Phys. Rev. C, 61, 054305(7) (18 April 2000); Phys. Atom. Nucl. (Yad. Fiz.), 63, 2067 (2000); Laser Phys., 11, 1-5 (2001); Hyper.

Page 50: "Two-photon transitions have been investigated theoretically as early as 1929 [cit. papers of Maria Goeppert-Meyer (1929, 1931)]. Experimental observations in the visible have become possible, however, only since the advent of strong laser sources [cit. our paper [20], C. B. Collins et al., Phys. Rev. A, vol. 8, 2197 (1973) ]. …We believe that our experiment is the first demonstration of the extremely high resolution obtainable by this phenomenon [Foot Note: Very recently we learned that Levenson and Bloembergen at Harvard have also observed two-photon transitions without Doppler broadening. They observed the Na 3S-5S transition, using a nitrogen-laser-pumped pulsed dye laser]... Our experiment opens the way to numerous interesting spectroscopic studies of atoms and molecules. The new technique complements the methods of laser saturation spectroscopy and is particularly attractive because it allows us to study forbidden lines and to reach high lying states at twice the laser photon energy. It vastly extends the number of atoms and molecules which can be studied with high resolution, using CW dye lasers of limited tuning range."

T. W. Hänsch, Appl.Optics, vol.11, 895 (1972)] and detected by a space charge limited cesium vapor photodiode [cit. our paper [19], Popescu et al., Phys.Rev. A, vol.8, 1666 (1973) ]. Transitions have been observed from the 6S ground state to selected higher lying nS Rydberg levels up to n=14 and nD levels to n=19. Line strength ratios of the fine and hyperfine structure components have been measured and compared with theoretical predictions."
