John Tyndall Award
The John Tyndall Award is named for the 19th century scientist who was the first to demonstrate a phenomenon of internal reflection. First presented in 1987, the Tyndall Award recognizes an individual who has made pioneering, highly significant, or continuing technical or leadership contributions to fiber optics technology. Corning, Inc. endows the award, a glass sculpture that represents the concept of total internal reflection. The award is co-sponsored by OSA and the IEEE/Photonic Society.
