The Optical Society Presents Awards to Winners of Its Inaugural ‘Enabled by Optics’
Date:11/6/2013

Washington (PRWEB) November 06, 2013

The Optical Society (OSA) celebrated light-based technologies that transform our world at an inaugural special event held recently at its 97th Annual Meeting Frontiers in Optics (FiO) in Orlando, Fla. Winners of the first annual Enabled by Optics contest were honored at an awards ceremony featuring a networking reception, “Optics at the Movies,” market updates and an interactive interview with Marv DeVries, President of the first place winner Trojan Technologies.

The Enabled by Optics program, which was comprised of two tracks, one for companies and the other for students, was designed to raise public awareness of the importance of optics and photonics technologies in furthering innovation and positively impacting society. Addressing the topic of “What’s optics got to do with it?” corporate entities each submitted a white paper that highlighted how their optics-driven technology beneficially contributes to everyday life and often serves the greater public good. Student contestants each created a video that demonstrated how optics is a crucial component to making a commonly used product work. Award recipients were:

First Place - Company Submission
Trojan Technologies of London, Ontario, Canada, was named the winner of the company contest for its innovative water disinfection solutions that use environmentally responsible, cost-effective ultraviolet (UV) light in place of chemicals. The use of UV disinfection by municipalities around the world prevents the spread of harmful organisms in the water supply and also destroys harmful contaminants.
