Dennis Gabor Award

The Dennis Gabor Award is presented annually in recognition of outstanding accomplishments in diffractive wavefront technologies, especially those which further the development of holography and metrology applications. Honorarium $2,000.

Kazuyoshi ITOH, Osaka University, Osaka, Japan, is the 2015 winner of the Dennis Gabor award in recognition of his eminent contribution to the development of incoherent holography and nonlinear optical microscopy through your pioneering work on coherence-based multispectral and 3D imaging, and nonlinear optical imaging and manipulations of biological and inorganic industrial materials.
