2011 Distinguished Lecturer Awards
The deadline for submitting nominations for the Quantum Electronics Award and Distinguished Lecturer Awards is February 16th.
A list of previous winners and awards information is available on the Photonics Society web site: www.PhotonicsSociety.org under the “Awards” tab.
The Quantum Electronics Award is given for exceptional and outstanding technical contributions that have had a major impact in the fields of quantum electronics and lasers and electro-optics. This award is given for truly excellent and time-tested work in any of the fields of interest of the Photonics Society. It may be given to an individual or to a group for a single outstanding contribution or for a long history of significant technical work in the field. No candidate shall have previously received a major IEEE award for the same work. Candidates need not be members of the IEEE or the PHOTONICS SOCIETY. The award will be presented at the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics/Quantum Electronics and Laser Science Conference (CLEO/QELS 2011).
The Distinguished Lecturer Awards are presented to honor interesting speakers who have made recent significant contributions to the field of lasers and electro-optics, or who have industrial or entrepreneurial experience at a senior level in the fields of interest to the Photonics Society. The program is designed to honor excellent speakers who have made technical, industrial or entrepreneurial contributions of high quality and to enhance the technical programs of the Photonics Society chapters. Consideration is given to having a well-balanced variety of speakers who can address a wide range of topics of current interest in the fields covered by the Photonics Society. The term for the Lecturers is July 1 of the year of election until June 30 for the following year. Candidates need not be members of the IEEE or the PHOTONICS SOCIETY.
