Jun 2008
L. Cary Gunn, co-founder and chief technology officer for Carlsbad, Calif.-based fabless semiconductor company Luxtera, has been awarded the Adolph Lomb Medal by the Optical Society of America (OSA) for his pioneering work in the development and commercialization of silicon photonics. The Lomb Medal is awarded to those who demonstrate noteworthy contributions to optics before they turn 35. Gunn's early work formed the foundation for Luxtera's technology, most recently culminating with the development of the first 40-GB optical active cable, OSA's board said. Gunn holds a BS in applied physics from the US Air Force Academy and a PhD in electrical engineering from the California Institute of Technology.
