BELLINGHAM, Wash., Jan. 5, 2022 — SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, has named 58 fellows, which will comprise this year’s class. Fellows are honored for their technical achievements and for their service to the optics and photonics community and to SPIE.

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, more than 1600 SPIE members have become fellows.

Of the notable inductees this year, half are from the United States. The other half hail from countries including Australia, China, Germany, Japan, Malaysia, Poland, South Korea, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, and Taiwan. This year SPIE has named its first fellows from Egypt and Chile: Salah Obayya, a professor of photonics and director of the Center for Photonics and Smart Materials at the Zewail City of Science and Technology; and Sergio Torres, a professor in the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of Concepción.

SPIE 2022 Fellows“SPIE Fellows represent the breadth of our global constituency as well as the technical range, diversity, and ethos of our society,” said Michelle Stock, chair of the SPIE Fellows Committee and the director of business development and sales at TracInnovations.

“I’m delighted that we have continued to diversify our fellow membership geographically this year. With our 58 new inductees, we recognize and celebrate the innovative technologies and scientific breakthroughs developed and generated across the optics and photonics industry by our fellow members in academia, industry, and government, as well as their long-term contributions to SPIE. It’s been a pleasure to work with the Fellows Committee to honor these new SPIE fellows, and a pleasure to acknowledge each one of them for their professional successes.”

New fellows are acknowledged during the SPIE symposium of their choice throughout the year.
