The year 2024 marks a significant moment in the field of optics and photonics as our very own Kramer Akli, serving as the Program Manager of U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Fusion Energy Sciences High Energy Density Laboratory Plasmas, Quantum Information Science, and Inertial Fusion Energy Programs, has been elected as a Fellow of Optica (formerly known as OSA). This prestigious recognition is a testament to his outstanding contributions to research, business, education, engineering, and dedicated service to both Optica and our global community.
The election to the 2024 class of Optica Fellows is a highly competitive process, as Fellows can make up no more than 10 percent of the total membership.
