In this work, published in 1963, he created a model for photodetection and explained the fundamental characteristics of different types of light, such as laser light (see coherent state) and light from light bulbs (see blackbody). A laser is a device that emits Light ( Electromagnetic radiation) through a process called Stimulated emission. In Quantum mechanics a coherent state is a specific kind of quantum state of the Quantum harmonic oscillator whose dynamics most closely resemble the oscillating behaviour In Physics, a black body is an object that absorbs all light that falls on it His theories are widely used in the field of quantum optics. Quantum optics is a field of research in Physics, dealing with the application of Quantum mechanics to phenomena involving Light and its interactions
Glauber was born in 1925 in New York City, a member of the 1941 graduating class of the Bronx High School of Science, and went on to do his undergraduate work at Harvard University. The City of New York The Bronx High School of Science (commonly called Bronx Science, Bronx Sci, or just Science, and officially known as H After his sophomore year he was recruited to work on the Manhattan Project, where (at the age of 18) he was one of the youngest scientists at Los Alamos. The World War II Manhattan Project developed the first Nuclear weapon (atomic bomb His work involved calculating the critical mass for the atom bomb. A critical mass is the smallest amount of Fissile material needed for a sustained Nuclear chain reaction. A nuclear weapon is an explosive device that derives its destructive force from Nuclear reactions either fission or a combination of fission and fusion. After two years at Los Alamos, he returned to Harvard, receiving his bachelor's degree in 1946 and his PhD in 1949.
Glauber has received many honors for his research, including the A. A. Michelson Medal from the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia (1985), the Max Born Award from the Optical Society of America (1985), the Dannie Heineman Prize for Mathematical Physics from the American Physical Society (1996), and the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physics.

The American Physical Society was founded in 1899 and is the World 's second largest organization of physicists behind the Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft. The Nobel Prize in Physics (Nobelpriset i fysik is awarded once a year by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. On the 22th of April of 2008, Professor Glauber was awarded the 'Medalla de Oro del CSIC' ('CSIC's Gold Medal') in a ceremony held in Madrid, Spain. The Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas ( CSIC) Spanish or Spanish National Research Council is the largest public research organisation Madrid (pronounced in English in Spanish and colloquially in Spain) is the Capital and largest city of Spain. 
He currently lives in Arlington, Massachusetts and is the Mallinckrodt Professor of Physics at Harvard University, where both past and present students enthusiastically praised his teaching to Harvard Crimson reporters. Arlington is a town in Middlesex County, Massachusetts, United States, six miles (10 km northwest of Boston. The Harvard Crimson, the daily Student newspaper of Harvard University, was founded in 1873
Glauber has two children, a son and a daughter, and five grandchildren.
Roy Glauber's recent research has dealt with problems in a number of areas of quantum optics, a field which, broadly speaking, studies the quantum electrodynamical interactions of light and matter. Quantum electrodynamics ( QED) is a relativistic Quantum field theory of Electrodynamics. He is also continuing work on several topics in high-energy collision theory, including the analysis of hadron collisions, and the statistical correlation of particles produced in high-energy reactions. In Particle physics, a hadron ( from the ἁδρός hadrós, " stout, thick " (
Specific topics of his current research include: the quantum mechanical behavior of trapped wave packets; interactions of light with trapped ions; atom counting-the statistical properties of free atom beams and their measurement; algebraic methods for dealing with fermion statistics; coherence and correlations of bosonic atoms near the Bose-Einstein condensation; the theory of continuously monitored photon counting-and its reaction on quantum sources; the fundamental nature of “quantum jumps”; resonant transport of particles produced multiply in high-energy collisions; the multiple diffraction model of proton-proton and proton-antiproton scattering. In physics a wave packet is an envelope or packet containing an arbitrary number of wave forms In Particle physics, fermions are particles which obey Fermi-Dirac statistics; they are named after Enrico Fermi. In Particle physics, bosons are particles which obey Bose-Einstein statistics; they are named after Satyendra Nath Bose and Albert Einstein A Bose–Einstein condensate (BEC is a State of matter of Bosons confined in an external Potential and cooled to Temperatures very near to In Physics, a quantum leap or quantum jump is a change of an Electron from one energy state to another within an Atom.

For many years before winning his Nobel Prize, Glauber was familiar to audiences of the Ig Nobel Prize ceremonies, where he took a bow each year as "Keeper of the Broom," sweeping the stage clean of the paper airplanes that have traditionally been thrown during the event. The Ig Nobel Prizes are a Parody of the Nobel Prizes and are given each year in early October — around the time the recipients of the genuine Nobel Prizes are A paper plane, paper aeroplane, paper Glider, paper airplane or paper dart is a toy plane made out of paper
