2018 SPIE Senior Members

136 New Senior Members Elected

SPIE Senior Members are Members of distinction honored for their professional experience, their active involvement with the optics community and SPIE, and/or significant performance that sets them apart from their peers. Senior Member recognition is a separate category from the Society's Fellows program, intended to be more accessible to active Members earlier in their careers, as well as other Members in a broader constituency.

SPIE Members can apply for this distinction by completing and submitting the nomination form, or be nominated by a colleague or mentor. Nominations will be reviewed by the SPIE Membership Committee who will then submit their recommendations to the SPIE Board of Directors for approval.  Please view Senior Member nomination criteria before applying.
