Engineering Achievement Award
The IEEE Photonics Society Engineering Achievement Award is given to recognize an exceptional engineering contribution which has had a significant impact on the development of laser or electro-optic technology or the commercial application of technology within the past 10 years. It may be given to an individual or to a group for a single contribution of significant work in the field. No candidate shall have previously received a major IEEE award for the same work. Candidates need not be members of the IEEE or the Photonics Society. The Award consists of an honorarium of $1000 and a medal. The presentation is made at the IEEE Photonics Conference.
For pioneering contributions to optical interconnection networks and photonic-enabled architectures that advance communications and computing systems.
