DRESDEN, Germany, Aug. 7, 2020 — The IEEE Photonics Society has honored Chair Professor and Director of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Dresden University of Technology Juergen Czarske with the 2020 Laser Instrumentation Award. Czarske earned the award, which is the first the society has presented, for the invention and commercialization of novel computational laser metrology for paradigm-changing imaging and sensing in technical processes, biomedicine, and fiber-optical communication.

Czarske is an OSA, EOS, and SPIE fellow; IEEE senior member; Saxon Academy of Sciences and the Scientific Society for Laser Technology elected member; German Society of Applied Optics and German Association for Laser Anemometry board member; and author of more than 200 journal articles. His awards include the 1996 AHMT Measurement Technique Prize, a 2008 Berthold Leibinger Innovation Prize, a 2014 Reinhart Koselleck Project of German Research Foundation, and the 2019 OSA Joseph Fraunhofer Award/Robert M. Burley Prize.

The IEEE Photonics Society awards the Laser Instrumentation Award in recognition of major developments to laser-based and electro-optical instruments, which lead to the development of innovative systems enabling major new measurements or process capabilities of relevance to applications in industrial, biomedical, avionic, and/or metrological fields.
