WASHINGTON, D.C., Sept. 15, 2020 — Members of The Optical Society (OSA) have elected Michal Lipson, the Eugene Higgins Professor at Columbia University and pioneer in the field of silicon photonics, the society’s 2021 vice president. As part of OSA’s presidential chain, Lipson will serve as OSA president in 2023.

“In the field of silicon photonics, Lipson is a pioneer whose work in tailoring the electro-optic properties of silicon and advancing research and development is world-renowned,” OSA CEO Elizabeth Rogan said. “Her contributions to OSA and the optics and photonics community have been extraordinary, and the society will continue to benefit from her serving in this key leadership role.”

OSA members additionally elected two directors-at-large to serve on the OSA board of directors for the 2021-2023 term: Joyce Poon, director of the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics, and Ulrike Woggon, a professor of experimental physics, in particular nonlinear optics, at the Institute for Optics and Atomic Physics of the Technical University Berlin (TUB).
