Theodore B. Norris received his B.A. in Physics (with Highest Honors) from Oberlin College in 1982, and his PhD in Physics from the University of Rochester in 1989, with a dissertation on time-resolved tunneling in semiconductor heterostructures.  He continued his investigations of time-resolved optical studies of semiconductors at Thomson-CSF (now called Thales) in France from 1989 to 1990.  During 1990-1992, he was an Assistant Research Scientist at the Ultrafast Science Laboratory (which became CUOS), from 1992-1996 an Assistant Professor, and from 1996-2001, an Associate Professor in EECS at the University of Michigan.

His research interests include the application of femtosecond optical techniques to the physics of semiconductor structures, the development of new ultrafast optical and electronic probes with high spatial resolution for applications to semiconductor nanostructures and biological imaging, and in developing new laser sources for applications in femtosecond spectroscopy and the generation of THz radiation. His research is performed at the Center for Ultrafast Optical Science , the Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Department and the Applied Physics Program at the University of Michigan.

He is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America, and a member of IEEE, APS, and AAAS. He was a co-recipient of the Paul Rappaport Award for best paper in an IEEE Electron Devices Society publication in 1999, and received the EECS Department Research Excellence Award in 1997.
