Congratulations to Sourangsu Banerjee, who won the best student poster award at “São Paulo School of Advanced Science (SPSAS) + XIV Jorge André Swieca School on Non linear and Quantum Optics (SWIECA) held in Nuclear and Energy Research Institute, IPEN, at the University of São Paulo (USP) in Brazil (link). His poster (collaboration with Monjurul Meem) was titled “From Visible to THz: Planar Optics for High-Precision, Energy-Efficient Laser Applications.”
Rajesh was recently elected to be a Senior Member of SPIE. SPIE Senior Members are Members of distinction honored for their professional experience, their active involvement with the optics community and SPIE, and/or significant performance that sets them apart from their peers.
Rajesh chairs the OSA’s Computational Sensing & Imaging (COSI) Conference in Orlando, FL June 25-28, 2019. This is the best focused, small meeting in the overall field of computational imaging. Rajesh also gave a presentation here titled, “Computational cannula microscopy: utilizing a single glass needle for imaging.”
Apratim’s paper on the ultracompact polarization rotator was chosen as one of the top downloaded articles in integrated photonics in Optics Express. The paper is freely available here.
Rajesh gave a Physics Dept. seminar at the University of Wisconsin Madison titled “Ultra-compact, multi-functional photonics via nanofabrication & computation” on May 30, 2018.
Rajesh presented at the Ideation Workshop of the Banknotes Conference in Dallas, TX and his talk was titled “Full-color transmissive holograms verifiable by any mobile phone.”
