Hecht studied at New York University (B.S. in E.P. 1960), Rutgers University (M. Sc. 1963), Adelphi University (Ph.D. 1967). During his graduate study he worked at Radio Corporation of America. He became interested in optics in the 1960s and began writing about it in 1970, e.g., polarization.Adelphi University hired Hecht to teach and he became professor in 1978 and he retired in 2021.

Beginning around the founding of the Optical Society, the OSA Century of Optics presents a selection of people, events and technologies that were important to the evolution of optics, optical science, optical engineering, and photonics. A number of the chapters are written by the researchers and engineers that were seminal in making the discoveries that are showcased, and the book ends with 8 prominent scientists, including Nobel Prize winner Dr. Steven Chu, speculating about what the next 100 years will bring to the field of optics.
In recent years there has been considerable interest in the development of basic building blocks of optical nanocircuitry and improved photovoltaic devices that take advantage of plasmonic resonances of noble metals and the associated strongly enhanced local fields1,2,3,4. Subwavelength plasmonic waveguides5,6, optical nanoantennas7,8 and various plasmonic modulators9,10 and resonators for high-resolution sensing and microscopy8,11,12,13,14 have been suggested and realized experimentally. Furthermore, the strongly enhanced local fields associated with plasmon resonances have been exploited to boost various nonlinear optical phenomena15,16. Recently, the first steps have been taken to transfer concepts of quantum optics to plasmonics17,18,19,20. In combination with coherent control techniques for near-field manipulation21,22,23, gain materials for field amplification24,25,26,27 and the impedance matching concept for building up optical nanocircuitry28,29, functional plasmonic nanocircuitry operating at optical frequencies is becoming an important scientific and technological field.
