Geoffrey Smith wins NSW Science and Engineering award

30 November 2011

SPIE Fellow Geoffrey Smith (University of Technology Sydney)JPEG photo was awarded the 2011 New South Wales Science and Engineering award for his work in sustainable and energy-efficient technologies.

The award recognized his contributions to development of green roofing systems and window and lighting technologies based on colored heat-reflective coatings that can lower the amount of daytime heat absorption.

Smith gave a keynote talk on green nanotechnology at SPIE Optics + Photonics, and is the author of more than 30 papers on that topic in the SPIE Digital Library.
