Prof. Avi Zadok Honored as Fellow of Optica, the Scientific society of Optics and Photonics
Research by Prof. Avi Zadok of the BIU Faculty of Engineering focuses on developing fibers that can serve as sensors and measure various substances in environments where direct optical measurements are not feasible.
Prof. Avi Zadok, of Bar-Ilan University's Faculty of Engineering, has been elected to the 2024 Class of Fellows of Optica, the leading US-based optics and photonics society.
The Optica Board of Directors of Optica selected Prof. Zadok as a Fellow "for pioneering optomechanical sending outside optical fibers". "You join a distinguished group of members who have served the Society and the optics and photonics community with distinction," wrote Optica 2023 President Michal Lipson in a letter congratulating Zadok.
Prof. Zadok's research focuses on two main areas: photonic integrated circuits and fiber optics.
Optica Fellows are selected based on several factors, including outstanding contributions to research, business, education, engineering and service to Optica and its community.
One hundred twenty-nine members from 26 countries were elected to the Optica Society's 2024 Fellow Class. The new Fellows will be honored at Optica conferences and events throughout 2024. Prof. Zadok plans to attend one of the scheduled events in mid-2024.
