SPIE Names 69 New Fellows of the Society in 2013

BELLINGHAM, WA, USA (PRWEB) January 18, 2013

SPIE will promote 69 new Fellows of the Society this year, to recognize the significant scientific and technical contributions of each in the multidisciplinary fields of optics, photonics, and imaging. SPIE Fellows are honored for their technical achievements and for their service to the general optics community and to SPIE in particular. More than 1,000 SPIE members have become Fellows since the Society’s inception in 1955.

The annual recognition of Fellows provides an opportunity for SPIE to acknowledge Members for their outstanding technical contributions and service to SPIE.

“The SPIE Fellow award is given only for the highest technical achievement in optics and photonics, and friends and colleagues of the winners should be aware of the special nature of this prize,” said William Arnold, 2013 SPIE President. “All of us congratulate these extraordinary people for their accomplishments.”

This year’s honorees include its first members elected from Iceland and South Africa.

“The 2013 Fellows are recognized for outstanding academic achievements in optics, photonics and significant contributions in the optical community and SPIE leadership. Congratulations to them all,” said Cheng-Chung Lee, National Central University (Taiwan), chair of the 2012 SPIE Fellows Committee. “The Fellows Committee continues to encourage the nominations of deserving candidates for next year's awards.”

Fellows are recognized at SPIE meetings of their choice throughout the year. This year, new Fellows are scheduled to be inducted at SPIE Photonics West, SPIE Advanced Lithography, SPIE Smart Structures, SPIE Defense, Security and Sensing, SPIE Optics + Photonics, and other SPIE meetings.
