Established in 2012, this prize honors Ivan Kaminow for his many contributions to the field of optics and photonics, as well as his dedication to mentoring and inspiring early career researchers.
Each year, one early career professional member will receive funding to attend our Leadership Meeting and to one of our other technical meeting of their choice. Recipients will also have the opportunity to be placed and mentored on Committees, further enhancing their professional development. This fund is sponsored by the Kaminow family, Intel Corporation and personal donations from the community.
