2023 Laser Instrumentation Award Recipients Announced

LIA award winners2023 v2

The IEEE Photonics Society is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2023 IEEE Photonics Society Laser Instrumentation Award.

For eminent impact to the field of laser based enhanced remote bio-sensing and its usage for photonic medical diagnosis.

Join us in congratulating the following honorees:

Javier Garcia received his Ph.D. in Physics by the Universitat de Valencia in 1994. Nowadays, he is full Professor in Optics at the Universitat de Valencia, Spain. He has published over 200 papers on peer reviewed journals and he is the inventor of several commercialized patents. His background is in optical image processing, microscopy, interferometry, holography and Fourier optics. Aside from academy work he participates or has participated as founding partner in several startup companies (such as Cytolovue, Continuse Biometrics, Donisi) or key advisor in projects with private companies (such as EADS or PrimeSense) and he is currently engaged as scientific researcher at Donisi Health.

Aside of contributions in super resolved imaging and non linear optical systems, the main activity along the last years is centered in recording and analysis of biological parameters by optical methods, specially dynamic speckle photography. The activity comprehends optical system design and prototyping, as well as the development of algorithms for signal retrieval and clasificación.

Zeev Zalevsky received his B.Sc. and direct Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Tel-Aviv University in 1993 and 1996 respectively. Zeev is currently a full Professor and the Dean of the faculty of engineering in Bar-Ilan University, Israel. His major fields of research are optical super resolution, biomedical optics, nano-photonics and fiber-based processing and sensing architectures. Zeev has published more than 6000 peer review papers, 350 proceeding papers, 9 books, 34 book chapters and about 100 patents. Zeev gave more than 600 conference presentations with more than 250 invited/keynote or plenary talks. For his research he received many national and international prizes. Zeev is a fellow of many large scientific societies such as IEEE, SPIE, Optica and more. Zeev is also a fellow of AIMBE and of the American national academy of inventors (NAI).
