SPIE Fellow Zeev Zalevsky has won the international School for Advanced Optical Technologies Young Research Award for 2011.
Zalevsky, a professor at Bar-Ilan Univ., was recognized for his pioneering contributions in the development of optical techniques for enhanced imaging resolution and its use for biomedical applications.
The prize is given annually by German federal and state governments through the Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg.
Zalevsky has authored more than 30 articles for SPIE journals and more than 70 conference proceedings presentations, most recently at the SPIE Optical Metrology meeting in Munich. He has papers on "Coherence and speckle in photomedicine and photobiology" and "Direct laser light enhancement of susceptibility of bacteria to gentamicin antibiotic" on the program for SPIE Photonics West next January in San Francisco.
The award will presented later this spring in Erlangen. Read more about the prize.
