SPIE Member Graeme Malcolm, founder and CEO of SPIE Corporate Member M Squared Lasers, has been elected to Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering. Malcolm is one of 50 new Fellows formally admitted to the Academy at its Annual General Meeting in London 5 September.

No more than 50 new Fellows are elected in any one year to the Academy. The new Fellows join a collective of just over 1,500 Fellows whose goal, according to the Academy, is to promote excellence in engineering and to enhance and support engineering research, policy formation, education and entrepreneurship and other activities that advance and enrich engineering in all its forms. Malcolm is recognized for his important contribution to the research, development, and commercialization of solid-state lasers.

Malcolm has authored several papers and is a frequent participant in SPIE events as a speaker, panel member, exhibition liaison, and presenter. His company, M Squared Lasers, is also a regular exhibitor at the Photonics West BiOS exhibition. In addition to his many endeavors with the Society, last year he was also awarded the 2016 Katharine Burr Blodgett Medal and Prize from the Institute of Physics.
