Fei Xia receives the Optica Foundation Challenge Award
The Optica Foundation recognizes ten early-career professionals with exceptional ideas to leverage optics and photonics and address global challenges. These individuals drive new, impactful scientific discoveries with the potential to transform our world. We consider proposals for problem-solving solutions resulting from basic research and development or enhancements of photonics-based technology in three categories: Environment, Health and Information.
Winners each receive US$100,000 prizes to support addressing the challenge over one to two years. These prizes provide seed money to ideas that may be difficult to fund from other sources.
