Prof. Dholakia awarded SPIE Dennis Gabor Award 2018

Kishan Dholakia, University of St Andrews, School of Physics & Astronomy, North Haugh, St. Andrews, Fife, is the 2018 winner of the Dennis Gabor Award in recognition of his work in optical beam shaping using dynamic and static diffractive optics. This work has led to paradigm shifts in manipulation, nano-surgery and imaging and has enabled new routes for the understanding of holographic light fields for a range of applications.
