SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, has announced 72 members as new fellows of the society for 2020.

Fellows are members of the society who have made significant scientific and technical contributions in the multidisciplinary fields of optics, photonics, and imaging. Since the society’s inception in 1955, 1538 SPIE members have become fellows.

The notable inductees include Pennsylvania State University’s Zoubeida Ounaies; Nature Photonics international editor Rachel Won; Daylight Solutions co-founder, CEO, and CTO Timothy Day; Berkeley Catalyst Fund founding partner Laura Smoliar; Friedrich Schiller University Jena professor Stefan Nolte; and Infinera advanced development director Gloria Hoefler.

The 72 new fellows include a record number of women and represent technologies across the optics and photonics industries developed by scientists in academia, industry, and government. “Our fellows represent the technical range, diversity, and ethos of SPIE,” said Jeffrey Puschell, chair of the SPIE Fellows Committee.

New fellows are recognized at the SPIE symposium of their choice throughout the year. The first group will be recognized at the fellows luncheon at SPIE Photonics West 2020, which will include a presentation by the 2020 SPIE Gold Medal-winner Ursula Keller.

The complete list of the 2020 SPIE fellows with photos is available online, along with a list of all SPIE fellows, nomination criteria, and the SPIE fellows nomination form.
