The Optical Society Announces 2020 Fellows Class

WASHINGTON – The Optical Society (OSA) Board of Directors has elected 94 members to the society’s 2020 Fellows Class. Fellows are selected based on several factors, including contributions to education, research, engineering, business and the community.

“Being named an OSA Fellow is a singular honor and indicates a history of achievement in optics and photonics, and a reputation for service to OSA and our field,” said OSA President Ursula Gibson. “Congratulations to the 2020 Fellows Class, and our thanks to the OSA Fellow Members Committee, nominators and references for their continued support of this program.”

OSA Fellows are members who have served with distinction in the advancement of optics and photonics. The OSA Fellow Members Committee, led by Aref Chowdhury, Nokia Corporation, U.S.A., reviewed more than 200 nominations submitted by current OSA Fellows and recommended candidates for election to the Awards Council and OSA Board of Directors. No more than 10 percent of the total OSA membership may be Fellows at any given time, making each year’s honorees a highly selective group.

The new Fellows will be honored at OSA conferences and meetings throughout 2020.
