OSA Awards & Distinctions



John G Robson received OSA’s Edgar D. Tillyer Award in 1996 “for research in visual psychophysics, physiology, and optics, which has shown us how to apply linear systems theory and sinusoidal grating to characterize how visual contrast is transmitted through the optics, retina, and cortex, to perception, elucidating the relation between the visual scene in front of the eye and the neural image in the brain.” He is a Fellow of OSA and of the Royal Society.
