BELLINGHAM, Wash., March 7, 2014 — Mark Stockman has earned the designation of SPIE fellow for his work with theoretical nano-optics and nanoplasmonics.

A physics professor at Georgia State University and director of its Center for Nano-Optics, Stockman has made significant contributions to the advancement of the nano industry.

Among them is the development of the spaser (surface plasmon amplification by stimulated emission of radiation), which is 1,000 times smaller than the smallest laser. He also invented a technique for concentrating and transferring energy to the nanoscale using a gold funnel with a thin needle, a technique that has been incorporated into microscopes by researchers worldwide.

Stockman’s work, which also includes the explanation of hot spots, introduction of adiabatic nanofocusing and ultrafast coherent control of nanolocalized optical fields, has been published in numerous journals and books.

SPIE designates fellows based on their contributions in the optics, photonics and imaging industries.
