The Optical Society is pleased to name the 2014 recipients of its prestigious awards and medals.

Detecting HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and other deadly infectious diseases as early as possible helps to prevent their rapid spread and allows for more effective treatments. Now a new nanotechnology method—employing common, everyday shrink wrap—may make highly sensitive, extremely low-cost diagnosis of infectious disease agents possible.

Amongst the 800 presentations, 550 exhibitors and 12,700 attendees, the 2014 OFC Conference and Exposition left the optical communications community with valuable insights into the latest research in the field, current products and services on the market today and future industry trends.

The Optical Society (OSA) participated in a panel this week titled “How physics disciplinary societies can support teacher preparation and professional development” for the 2012 recipients of the U.S. Presidential Awards for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching.
