SPIE Fellow Min Gu, professor of optoelectronics at Swinburne University of Technology, has been awarded the W.H. (Beattie) Steel Medal from the Australian Optics Society. Considered Australia's most prestigious award in optics, the medal recognises Gu's strong and sustained record of authority, enterprise and innovation in the field.
Gu is the author of more than 80 papers for SPIE journals and conference proceedings, most recently on "Microfluidic sensing: state of the art fabrication and detection techniques" in the August 2011 issue of the Journal of Biomedical Optics.
He is Symposium Chair of SPIE Smart Nano-Micro Materials and Devices, to be held in Melbourne in December. He has served on numerous SPIE conference committees at SPIE Photonics West, Optics + Photonics, and other events, including as chair of several conferences.
He is director of the Centre for Micro-Photonics at Swinburne, and and director of the state-government-funded Victoria-Suntech Advanced Solar Facility.
