ICO Honors Three with Awards during SPIE Optics and Optoelectronics
Date:5/25/2013

PRAGUE, Czech Republic (PRWEB) May 25, 2013

Significant research in quantum optics, metamaterials and plasmonics, and nanoscale optical manipulation have been recognized with presentation of awards by the International Commission for Optics (ICO). The presentations were made 16 April during the SPIE Optics and Optoelectronics 2013 symposium in Prague. SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, is an International Society Member of the ICO.

Jan Perina of Palacký University was presented with the 2011 ICO Galileo Galilei Award, for his results on quantum optics and coherence regarding non-classical states. The award recognizes outstanding contributions to the field of optics which are achieved under comparatively unfavorable circumstances.

Presenters of the Galileo Galilei Medal, donated by the Società Italiana di Ottica e Fotonica (SIOF), were Ivo Rendina, SIOF Past President and General Chair of Optics and Optoelectronics, and Francesco Baldini, SIOF Vice-President. Professor Perina’s Galileo Galilei Lecture was on “Quasidistributions in nonlinear quantum optics.”

Shuang Zhang of the University of Birmingham was awarded the 2010 IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Optics, made annually to a scientist who has made noteworthy contributions to applied optics and photonics during a maximum of eight years of research experience after having earned a PhD degree. ICO Secretary Angela Guzmán presented Dr. Zhang with the IUPAP Young Scientist Medal and Diploma.

Zhang’s award recognizes his work in metamaterials and plasmonics, particularly for the first demonstration of the double-fishnet structure, and achievements in realization
