Edmund Optics awards higher education grants

Photonics Spectra
Nov 2013
Edmund Optics of Barrington, N.J., has announced the winners of its 2013 Higher Education Global Grant Program. The optical components provider will award more than $85,000 in products to the first-, second- and third-place winners in the Americas, Asia and Europe in recognition of outstanding undergraduate and graduate optics programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics at nonprofit colleges and universities worldwide.

Among the awardees:


• In the Americas, the University of Illinois at Chicago, submitted by Simon Alford, won first place for developing a novel approach to imaging protein-protein interactions using a combination of total internal reflection microscopy and fluorescence anisotropy.

• In Asia, YongKeun Park of KAIST in South Korea took first place for the development of holography-based imaging techniques designed to study malaria, cancer and other neuro-diseases.

• In Europe, the University of Cambridge, submitted by Craig Mackay, placed first for building a new kind of instrument intended for the largest ground-based optical telescopes, which will deliver much higher angular resolution than any space-based images by combining a 5- to 10-m-class telescope with both Lucky Imaging and adaptive optics systems.
