Professor Kishan Dholakia of this School has been awarded the Institute of Physics Thomas Young Medal and Prize for 2017. This prestigious award is for his “contributions to the field of optical micromanipulation using shaped light fields in liquid, air and vacuum”.
The citation goes on to talk about Prof Dholakia’s “internationally acknowledged and distinguished reputation for his work … including new insights into the understanding of complex light fields and their propagation”.

The precise wavelength of a laser is important in numerous applications, but measuring changes of wavelength to one part in ten thousand million has been quite demanding. Our group has invented a new technique for doing such measurements based on the random scattering of laser light from a rough surface. This breakthrough could revolutionise the use of lasers in certain applications in quantum technologies and in healthcare.
