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

of the first 3D optical negative-index metamaterials. His IUPAP Awardee Lecture was on “Controlling light with bulk and surface metamaterials.”

Romain Quidant of ICFO (Institut de Ciències Fotòniques) was presented with the 2012 ICO Prize for his accomplishments in nanoscale optical manipulation, particularly his studies into the optical properties of metallic nanostructures. The concept has utility in technologies such as single-photon sources, sensing, and enhanced spectroscopy, offering the ability to control both light and heat for applications such as point-of-care diagnostics and cancer therapies.

Dr. Quidant, the leader of the research group on plasmon nano-optics at the ICFO, received the Ernst Abbe glass award donated by the Carl Zeiss Foundation from ICO Vice President Frank Höller, and presented the Ernst Abbe Lecture on “Plasmon nano-optics: taming light on the nanometer scale.”

The ICO Prize is presented annually to a person who has made a noteworthy contribution to optics before reaching the age of 40. The Ernst Abbe glass award with a 3D laser sculpted rendition of Ernst Abbe’s head replaced this time the former Ernst Abbe medal.

About the ICO

The ICO plays an important role in promoting optics in international forums, is a Scientific Affiliate of the International Council for Science (ICSU) and supports the IUPAP mission to assist in the worldwide development of physics, foster cooperation in the field, and aid in its application toward solving problems of concern to humanity. ICO members are organizations representing optics researchers and institutes through 53 Territorial Committees all over the world, and several international societies including SPIE that share the mission of advancing optics and photonics.
