He is being recognized for “founding the field of Parity-Time non-Hermitian Optics and of the field of Accelerating Waves, and leading them ever since, and for groundbreaking contributions in multiple areas in Physical Optics.”

This award honors Max Born, who made distinguished contributions to physics in general and to optics in particular. The award is presented to a person who has made outstanding contributions to physical optics, theoretical or experimental. The award consists of a silver medal, a certificate, and a $3,000 honorarium.  Public announcements of the award will be made by OSA in a February press release, in the June issue of Optics & Photonics News, and at FiO 2018.
