PASADENA, Calif., Aug. 24, 2010 — Optical software developer Optical Research Associates (ORA) announced the winners it selected for the annual Robert S. Hilbert Memorial Optical Design Competition, with granted awards totaling $4,000.

The awards are given to students in North America who are working toward a bachelor’s, master’s or Ph.D. degree, and who utilize ORA’s Code V or LightTools software to perform research in some area of optical design or engineering.

The 2010 top award winners are: Jesse McMullen, a Ph.D. candidate at Cornell University who used both software tools for his work titled, “A Multiphoton Objective Design With Incorporated Beam Splitter for Enhanced Fluorescence Collection;” and Joshua Kim, a Ph.D. candidate from the University of Arizona, College of Optical Sciences who utilized the company’s LightTools software for his work titled, “Modeling Transflective LCD Illumination Systems.”

Other awards were given to Ph.D. candidates Kyle Fuerschbach and Ying Geng, both from the University of Rochester, Institute of Optics, for their work utilizing the company’s Code V software.

GLOSSARY
fluorescence
The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
illumination
The general term for the application of light to a subject. It should not be used in place of the specific quantity illuminance.
objective
The optical element that receives light from the object and forms the first or primary image in telescopes and microscopes. In cameras, the image produced by the objective is the final image. In telescopes and microscopes, when used visually, the image formed by the objective is magnified by an eyepiece.
optical
Pertaining to optics and the phenomena of light.
