The International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE) has announced Min Gu as the 2019 recipient of the Dennis Gabor Award in Diffractive Optics, which is named in honor of the Nobel-winning inventor of holography, Dennis Gabor. Professor Gu is associate deputy vice chancellor for research innovation and entrepreneurship and director of the laboratory of artificial-intelligence nanophotonics at RMIT University. He holds a Ph.D. in optics from the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Distinguished Professor Min Gu, 2019 recipient of the Dennis Gabor Award in Diffractive Optics, in the laboratory of artificial-intelligence nanophotonics at RMIT University.
Recognized for his pioneering work in nanoscale information optics, Gu is a leading authority in the fields of nanophotonics, nanofabrication, and biophotonics. His work has led to major advancements in how data is stored, displayed, and transmitted.
“Optics is a tremendously exciting field and nanophonotics is at the frontier of research in so many ways,” he said. “Our work is driven by a desire to deliver real solutions to the real issues faced by industry. We seek industry input from the very start, to deeply understand the challenges and develop tailored technological solutions that can have a genuine impact.”
The Dennis Gabor Award is presented annually by SPIE in recognition of outstanding accomplishments in diffractive wavefront technologies, especially those that further the development of holography and metrology applications. The award will be presented to Gu at an official ceremony in August this year in San Diego, Calif.READ MORE
