SPIE will honor 33 new Fellows of the Society this year. Fellows are members of distinction who have made significant scientific and technical contributions in the multidisciplinary fields of optics, photonics, and imaging. They are honored for their technical achievement, for their service to the general optics community, and to SPIE in particular.
"The annual recognition of Fellows provides an opportunity for us to acknowledge outstanding members for their service to the general optics community," says SPIE President Paul McManamon.
