The Optical Society of America (OSA) has selected two Laboratory scientists as OSA fellows for 2007. Henry N. Chapman of the Physics and Advanced Technologies (PAT) Directorate was recognized for his “contributions to x-ray microscopy, coherent x-ray imaging, x-ray optics, and EUV lithography.” James Dunn of PAT was selected for his “important contributions to the development of soft x-ray lasers and optical diagnostics of dense plasmas.”
Both scientists attribute their recognition by the OSA to research opportunities at the Laboratory and, in particular, to the support they have received from the Laboratory Directed Research and Development Program.
The OSA limits its number of fellows to 10 percent of the total OSA membership and awards the honor to members who have served with distinction in the advancement of optics.
Electrical engineer Grace Clark of Livermore’s Engineering Directorate has been named a Fellow by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The total number of IEEE fellows selected in any one year does not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the worldwide IEEE voting membership. With this distinction, Clark becomes one of only three IEEE fellows currently at the Laboratory.
Clark was recognized for her pioneering contributions to the field of block adaptive filtering. Adaptive filters are electronic devices that automatically adjust to time-varying signal and noise environments. Clark’s current research focuses on the areas of signal and image processing and pattern recognition applied to acoustics, electromagnetics, and particle physics.
Mount Holyoke College has awarded the Mary Lyon Award to Laboratory researcher Sarah Chinn of the Chemistry, Materials, and Life Sciences Directorate. The award is given to a Mount Holyoke College alumna who has been out of college 15 years or less and who demonstrates promise or sustained achievement in her life, profession, or community.
Chinn, who attended Mount Holyoke College from 1993 to 1997, focuses her research on nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy of solid-, liquid-, and gas-phase systems; NMR probe design and hardware development; optically pumped NMR; and optically detected magnetic resonance.
