SPIE Fellow Jas Sanghera, head of the Optical Materials and Devices Branch at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), has received their E.O Hulburt Annual Science Award.

Named for the first Director of Research at NRL, the E.O.

Sanghera was recognized for his exceptional contributions to basic and applied scientific and technological phenomena, and pioneering the development of novel glasses, ceramics, crystals, thin films, fibers, bulk optics and devices incorporating these materials.

Sanghera was conference co-chair for Advanced Optics for Defense Applications: UV through LWIR last year, and will serve as co-chair again at SPIE Defense and Commercial Sensing 2017. He has also served on several program committees for other SPIE conferences and published more than 100 papers in SPIE proceedings. He was named a Fellow of SPIE in 2013.
