Pedram Johari awarded SPIE Optics and Photonics Education Scholarship

EE PhD Candidate Pedram Johari has been awarded a 2017 Optics and Photonics Education Scholarship by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, for his potential contributions to the field of optics, photonics or related field.  

Johari is studying nanoscale wireless communications under the supervision of Prof. Josep M. Jornet. “With the recent progress in nanoelectronics, nanophotonics and wireless communication, it is not beyond imagination that within a few years nanodevices will play a key role in our daily lives,” said Johari. “My goal is to study the feasibility and enable the optical communication among nanoscale devices, which can lead to unprecedented applications ranging from smart health‐monitoring intra‐body nanosensors to
ultra‐fast wireless inter‐core communications within massive‐core processors.” 

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. The Society serves nearly 264,000 constituents from approximately 166 countries, offering conferences and their published proceedings, continuing education, books, journals, and the SPIE Digital Library. In 2016, SPIE provided $4 million in support of education and outreach programs.
