A laser physicist and Professor of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona for many years, Dr. Sargent has been a Senior Software Design Engineer at Microsoft since 1992 and works in the Word Business Unit on Unicode rich and plain-text edit controls and international text architecture. In addition to his books on lasers and applications, he is an author (with Rick Shoemaker) of "The Personal Computer from the Inside Out," Addison-Wesley, Reading, MA 01867 (1994). In 1988, he and another physicist, David Weise, got Windows 2.x to run in protected mode, thereby eliminating the 640KB RAM barrier and leading the way to Windows 3.0.
