Tsinghua Professor Cao Liangcai and Alumnus Pan Shilong Elected Fellows at the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE)
Recently the International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE) published the list of Fellows newly elected in 2019. On the list were 88 scientists from all over the world. Prof. Cao Liangcai, an Associate Professor of Tsinghua University’s Department of Precision Instrument, and Prof. Pan, Shilong, a Tsinghua alumnus from the class of 2000 and a Professor of the Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, were on the list.
The International Society for Optical Engineering (SPIE) is one of the most renowned international academic organizations that is centered on the domains of optics and photonics. The selection process for its Fellowship is very rigorous. Only members of distinction who have made significant scientific and technical contributions in the multidisciplinary fields of optics, photonics, and imaging can receive a Fellowship. More than 1,400 SPIE members have become Fellows since the Society's inception in 1955. This year, there are also three Laureates of the 2018 Nobel Physics Prize among the elected Fellows: Dr. Arthur Ashkin, an American scientist; Prof. Gérard Mourou, a French scientist, and Prof. Donna Strickland, a Canadian scientist.
