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.

New Technique Accurately Digitizes Transparent Objects

A new imaging technique makes it possible to precisely digitize clear objects and their surroundings, an achievement that has eluded current state-of-the-art 3D rendering methods. The ability to create detailed, 3D digital versions of real-world objects and scenes can be useful for movie production, creating virtual reality experiences, improving design or quality assurance in the production of clear products and even for preserving rare or culturally significant objects.

New Software Turns Mobile-Phone Accessory into Breathing Monitor

Researchers have developed new software that makes it possible to use low-cost, thermal cameras attached to mobile phones to track how fast a person is breathing. This type of mobile thermal imaging could be used for monitoring breathing problems in elderly people living alone, people suspected of having sleep apnea or babies at risk for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).

Core Solutions Reach Optimally Extreme Light Pulses

As scientist probe nature ever more precisely with laser pulses, now aiming for the zeptosecond regime – a trillionth of a billionth of a second and the fastest scale of time measured – optimizing each parameter of those pulses can offer more finely tuned measurements of as-yet unknown dynamic properties. The laser wavelength, duration and energy of each pulse, and rate at which pulses are produced are all key factors in observing dynamics such as the real-time electron motions of single molecules together with the motion of consistituent atoms.

The Optics Driving Today’s Auto Industry

In the next ten years, the auto industry will undergo a profound transformation: the cars it builds, the power moving them forward and the consumers who buy them will look significantly different. Optical technologies, in many ways, will enable these changes. Featuring experts from all aspects of the automotive industry, this panel discussion will highlight advances the technology behind (and above) the dashboard and how it will impact how we drive in the future.

Light-Based Method Improves Practicality and Quality of Remote Wind Measurements

Researchers have developed a new remote sensing instrument based on light detection and ranging (LIDAR) that could offer a simple and robust way to accurately measure wind speed. The detailed, real-time wind measurements could help scientists to better understand how hurricanes form and provide information that meteorologists can use to pinpoint landfall earlier, giving people more time to prepare and evacuate.

Rush Holt to Deliver Science Policy talk during 2017 Frontiers in Optics + Laser Sciences Meeting

At a time when there are widespread concerns about the place of science in our society and government, what role should scientists have with policymakers? What can be done to help avoid policies that devalue science and discontinue the much needed investment in research and development? Rush Holt, CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) will address these issues and more during a special presentation during the Frontiers in Optics + Laser Science (FIO + LS) conference and exhibition in Washington, DC.

Clamping Down on Causality by Probing Laser Cavities

Since the realization of the first laser cavity countless questions have been asked for which laser light has provided the answer. Numerous questions have also been posed in an effort to improve on our abilities to produce lasers with various performance specifications and wavelengths. A question that was not asked until recently is – what happens if you shine a laser beam through another laser cavity? It may not seem a practical question to ask experimentally, but after studying how externally incident light interacts with an active laser cavity in quantitative detail, the answer turns out to offer devices with new, seemingly paradoxical optical capabilities.
