The Board of Directors of Optica, Advancing Optics and Photonics Worldwide, recently elected 129 members from 26 countries to the Society’s 2024 Fellow Class. Among them, physicist Daniele Brida from the University of Luxembourg was awarded for his outstanding contributions to the field of ultrafast optics and spectroscopy, and for actively serving the optics community.
Fellow membership in Optica is limited to no more than ten percent of the membership and is reserved for members who have served with distinction in the advancement of optics and photonics. Optica Fellows are selected based on several factors, including outstanding contributions to research, business, education, engineering and service to Optica and our community.
Prof. Daniele Brida from the Department of Physics and Materials Science (DPhyMS) at the University of Luxembourg is very proud to receive this award: “I am very happy to be recognised by the scientific community by being elected Optica fellow. I am doing my best to put optics and photonics on the map of relevant topics that are worthy of advanced research in Luxembourg. Important innovations in this field have, in fact, important outcomes with wide ranging impact spanning from telecommunications, quantum information, materials science, electronics and medicine.”
