訃告:厲鼎毅院士逝世. Dr. Tingye Li, world-renowned scientist, technologist, visionary, philosopher and ski enthusiast, passed away at the age of 81 from a sudden heart attack on Thursday, December 27th, 2012 in Snowbird, Utah during an annual family Christmas ski trip. A family funeral was held at the Serenicare Funeral Home in Draper, Utah at 4:00pm on December 29th, 2012, before his cremation. Tingye’s ashes will be brought home to Boulder Colorado, where an official memorial service will be held for Tingye’s family, friends and colleagues to remember him and pay their respects to him.

A giant in the telecommunications industry, Tingye’s passing was a huge loss to mankind and the technical community he helped to establish. Without his foundational work in microwave, laser physics and fiber optic technologies, today’s Internet would not exist. Companies such as Facebook and Google etc. would not have been born.
