New Fellows of the Society are promoted each year from among SPIE members of distinction who have made significant scientific and technical contributions in the multidisciplinary fields of optics, photonics, and imaging. Fellows are honored for their technical achievements and service to the optics community in general and SPIE in particular.
“I am honored to be named an SPIE Fellow. This is really thanks to the excellent career opportunity and strong foundation that HRL offers for us to grow professionally,” said Nguyen, who now joins more than 1,700 SPIE members who became Fellows since the Society’s inception in 1955. “This recognition is also a testimonial of HRL’s high technical caliber, and I am certain many other HRL staff members also deserve this rank.”
