Dennis Gabor Award
David J. Brady, Duke University, Durham, NC USA, is the 2013 winner of the Dennis Gabor award in recognition of his development of compressive holographic and tomographic imaging systems and for advances in the physical and information science of imaging and spectroscopy.
The Dennis Gabor award is presented annually in recognition of outstanding accomplishments in diffractive wavefront technologies, especially those which further the development of holography and metrology applications.
George W. Goddard Award
Samuel Harvey Moseley, NASA Goddard Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, USA, is the 2013 recipient of the George W. Goddard Award in recognition of his extraordinary inventions of superconducting imaging arrays for astronomy, ranging from submillimeter bolometers to energysensitive X-ray microcalorimeters, and even dark matter detectors, as well as microshutter arrays for the James Webb Space Telescope near IR spectrometer.
The George W. Goddard Award is presented annually in recognition of exceptional achievement in optical or photonic instrumentation for aerospace, atmospheric science, or astronomy. The award is for the invention and development of a new technique, photonic instrumentation, instrument, or system.
G.G. Stokes Award
José Jorge Gil, University of Zaragoza, Zaragoza, Spain, is the 2013 recipient of the G.G. Stokes Award in recognition of his groundbreaking collection of rigorous mathematical descriptions of polarization that are used widely to interpret experimental data. His work in polarization optics is a pivotal collection of contributions that form part of the underpinnings of modern polarimetry.
The G.G. Stokes Award is given annually for exceptional contribution to the field of optical polarization. The award may be presented for a specific achievement, development, or invention of significant importance to optical science and society, or may be given
