Yanne K. Chembo Named Fellow of SPIE

Associate Professor Yanne K. Chembo has been named a 2019 Fellow of SPIE, the International Society for Optics and Photonics. Chembo is one of 88 major international figures in optics, photonics and imaging named SPIE Fellows this year. Prof. Chembo is being recognized for his achievements in ultra-stable microwave photonics oscillators.

SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, an educational not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based science, engineering, and technology. More than 1,400 SPIE members have become Fellows since the Society’s inception in 1955. Fellows are Members of the Society who have made significant scientific and technical contributions in the multidisciplinary fields of optics, photonics, and imaging.

Prof. Chembo joined the ECE Department in January 2019. He holds a joint appointment in the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics. His research interests involve microwave photonics, optoelectronics, as well as nonlinear, stochastic, and quantum dynamics of complex photonic systems.

Prof. Chembo was a member of the Committee for Regional Development of the International Commission for Optics (ICO) from 2014 to 2017. He is a senior member of IEEE and OSA, an associate editor for the OSA journal Optics Express, and the IEEE Photonics Society Africa Initiative Representative.
