Optical Society Recognizes Profs’ Research Successes
UT Dallas News Center
Two UT Dallas faculty members have been elected fellows of the Optical Society of America for their pioneering work in decidedly high-tech areas of the field of optics.
Dr. Duncan MacFarlane was recognized for his “contributions to advancing integrated optics and their applications, including photonic filters, advanced displays and micro-optics.”
Dr. Lakshman Tamil was recognized “for significant contributions to the design and development of multi-terabit switches using photonic-electronic hybrid sub-wavelength switching.”
Both are professors of electrical engineering in the University’s Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science.
