SPIE Fellow Min Gu, professor at Swinburne University of Technology in Australia has been honored with an Australian Laureate Fellowship.

The Fellowship is bestowed by the Australian Government Research Council. "The Australian Laureate Fellowships scheme provides funding for outstanding researchers from Australia and around the world. The scheme is designed to support excellence in research by attracting world-class researchers and research leaders to key positions, and creating new rewards and incentives for the application of their talents in Australia," states their website.

Gu will use his fellowship to research a ground-breaking petabyte data storage technology which will allow storing the equivalent of 10,000 DVDs on one disc.

Gu is author of two papers to be presented at SPIE Optics and Photonics in San Diego in August, on "Surface activation of quantum dots for enhanced photorefractive performance," and "Functionalisation of 3D photonic crystals." He is author of two papers scheduled for SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco in January, on "Correcting aberrations in direct laser writing applications," and "Nanoparticle-enabled polymeric photorefractivity and applications in 3D optical data storage."
