Dr. Cadet received his doctorate degree in Nuclear Chemistry and Engineering from CUNY in 1987 and joined AT&T Bell Laboratories that same year as a postdoctoral member of Plasma Research Laboratory. During his first year, Cadet developed key technologies that became integral parts of high-speed computing systems. He led Bell Labs to win the prestigious RD-100 award for developing one of 100 most important scientific contributions in the US. His research at Bell labs span over 14 years and his accomplishments during those years are innumerable. Bell Laboratories awarded Dr. Cadet the status of Distinguished Member of Technical Staff (DMTS) in 1997 for his pioneering work in the field of process chemistry and control technology. He was named Black Engineer of the Year by US Black Engineer magazine in 1998. In 1999 Bell labs president presented him with the “Lucent Heroes Award” for his continued research if support of the environment.
Dr. Cadet joined Access Optical Networks Inc. (AON) as Director of optical engineering where he led a group of engineers at Princeton University towards the development of the first holographic data storage system. Dr. Cadet led an investigation of novel optoelectronic devices for power electronics, sensors, and communication. He has published worldwide and presented at several institutions in the United States and Europe.
He authored two book chapters in Acoustic and Fiber Optics.
