Dr. Yimin D. Zhang, Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Temple University, has been named a Fellow of the SPIE, “for achievements in computational imaging and applications to RF sensing.”

SPIE, the International Society for Optics and Photonics, was founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies. Serving 255,000 constituents from 183 countries, SPIE advances emerging technologies through interdisciplinary information exchange, continuing education, publications, patent precedent, and career and professional growth.

The name of SPIE came from the society’s former names of the Society of Photographic Instrumentation Engineers and later the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers.

According to the bylaws of SPIE, the Board of Directors may confer the grade of a Fellow on a member who has become distinguished through outstanding contributions in the relevant technologies, service to the Society, and service to the general optics and photonics community. This year, 72 SPIE members become new Fellows. SPIE has named more than 1,500 members as Fellows since 1955.
