23 March 2012 SPIE honors new Fellows

Prof. Majid Ebrahim-Zadeh

Prof. Majid Ebrahim-Zadeh elected SPIE Fellow for achievements in optical parametric sources and nonlinear frequency conversion technology. Each year, SPIE, the International Society of Optics and Photonics, promotes members as new Fellows of the Society. Fellows are members of distinction who have made significant scientific and technical contributions in the multidisciplinary fields of optics, photonics, and imaging. They are honored for their technical achievement, for their service to the general optics community, and to SPIE in particular. More than 900 SPIE members have become Fellows since the Society’s inception in 1955.

This year, SPIE honors 75 new Fellows of the Society, including ICREA Professor at ICFO, Majid Ebrahim-Zadeh.

SPIE sites a long list of commendations which qualify Prof. Ebrahim-Zadeh for this honor, including significant contributions to the field of nonlinear optics with his in-depth work in optical parametric oscillators (OPOs), entrepreneurial activities, and a constant history of active participation in the international optics community.

Congratulations Majid!
