David Andrews awarded Fellowship

CHE’s Professor David Andrews has been elected as a Fellow Member of the Optical Society (OSA).  Founded in 1916, the OSA is the leading professional association in optics and photonics, home to accomplished science, engineering and business leaders from all over the world.  Through world-renowned publications, meetings, and membership programmes, OSA provides quality information and inspiring interactions that power achievements in the science of light.  OSA is preparing to celebrate its 100th Anniversary this year so the class of 2016 Fellow Members will truly be a special one for the society.

Fellow membership in OSA 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.  Prof Andrews is being honoured specifically for pioneering research in the formulation of theory based on quantum electrodynamics for the optical interactions of molecules, nonlinear optics and photophysics.

Prof Andrews said “I am honoured and truly delighted to be awarded this Fellowship.  All due credit for this international recognition must go to my research group, for the pioneering research its various members have over carried out at this university over a great many years.  It is an especial pleasure and honour for me to be able to receive the award in this, the 100th anniversary of the Optical Society of America.  I shall accept the honour on behalf of them all.”
