The Optical Society Announces 2012 Class of Senior Members

WASHINGTON, May 15—The Optical Society (OSA) Board of Directors is pleased to announce the approval of 143 new Senior Members—an OSA membership distinction that provides well-established individuals with the opportunity to request a designation that recognizes their experience and professional accomplishments or service within the field of optics and photonics. The 143 Senior Members were announced at CLEO: 2012 in San Jose earlier this month. A listing of the newly inducted Senior Members appears below.

To qualify for Senior Membership, individuals must have at least 10 years of significant professional experience in the field, an active membership and two endorsement statements from OSA Members. Requests are reviewed by OSA’s Member and Education Services Council, which then recommends candidates to the Board of Directors for approval. Candidates who are not already affiliated with OSA are encouraged to establish a membership.

In addition to receiving OSA Individual Member benefits, Senior Member designees receive:

  • Special recognitions – Senior Members are identified in the OSA Member Directory, on OSA.org, and during OSA-hosted events.
  • Announcements – Newly approved Senior Members are announced in Optics & Photonics News, the OSA member e-newsletter, and other promotional materials.
  • Senior Member certificate and lapel pin – Distributed upon application approval.
  • Letter of recognition – Approved Senior Members may elect to have a confirmation letter sent to their employer.

Researchers Look Inside Dangerous Blood Clots with Optical Clearing Technique

A new technique that makes blood clots optically clear is allowing researchers to use powerful optical microscopy techniques to study the 3D structure of dangerous clots for the first time. Although blood clots stop bleeding after injury, clots that block blood flow can cause strokes and heart attacks.

Seeing the Forest Through the Trees with a New LiDAR System

Shortly after lasers were first developed in the 1960s, LiDAR – whose name originated as a combination of “light” and “radar” – capitalized on the newly unique precision they offered for measuring both time and distance. LiDAR quickly became the standard method for (3-D) land surveys and is now used in a multitude of sensing applications, such as self-driving cars.

Moisture-Responsive ‘Robots’ Crawl with No External Power Source

Using an off-the-shelf camera flash, researchers turned an ordinary sheet of graphene oxide into a material that bends when exposed to moisture. They then used this material to make a spider-like crawler and claw robot that move in response to changing humidity without the need for any external power.
