Optical Society Recognizes Profs Research Successes
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.
