They join their Fellow Member colleagues in being honored for their technical achievements, as well as for their service to the optics and photonics community and to SPIE.
Fellows are Members of the Society who have made significant scientific and technical contributions in the multidisciplinary fields of optics, photonics, and imaging. Since the Society's inception in 1955, more than 1,700 SPIE Members have become Fellows.
The inductees this year hail from across the globe, representing a varied group of countries that includes Australia, Belgium, China, France, Japan, Mexico, India, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States, and New Zealand. In a Society first, 35% of the new Fellows come from the industry sector including Edmund Optics CEO Samuel Sadoulet.
‘A strong constituency of women’
The 2023 Fellows cohort also includes a strong constituency of women, including the University of Auckland’s Cather Simpson and Frédérique Vanholsbeeck, and Ball Aerospace’s Makenzie Lystrup and Jeanette Domber.
“As well as being recognized for their technical achievements and contributions to the Society, SPIE Fellows represent our international and diverse community,” commented Chair of the SPIE Fellows Committee and TracInnovations Director of Business Development and Sales Michelle Stock.
“It’s been a pleasure this year to work with the Fellows Committee to honor our new SPIE Fellow Members, and to recognize their professional successes. As a Society, we celebrate our 83 new inductees, their innovative research and breakthrough technologies across optics and photonics, as well as their invaluable contributions to SPIE.”
