Ronghui Lin, a Ph.D. student under the supervision of Professor Xiaohang Li, has been awarded an SPIE 2020 Optics and Photonics Education Scholarship for his “potential long-range contribution to optics, photonics, or other related fields.”
In today’s world, it should come as no surprise that plastic dominates the products that we rely on each and every day. From our technology devices, to our water bottles, plastic is almost always an integral structural component.
Imagine if there was a revolutionary wearable technology that could enable the user to open doors or operate machinery with a simple wave of their hand or a mere blink of their eye? What people might not realize is that this contact-free human-machine technology already exists—and it has been developed right here in a laboratory at KAUST.
KAUST, like many other international research institutions, is no different in its approach to addressing our current need for continuous and uninterrupted distance learning. E-learning has proved effective in theoretical and mathematically-oriented disciplines, where access to a computer locally or over the cloud is all that is required.
Winning a group-wide award such as the recent CES Innovation Award 2020 is becoming a regular occurrence for one of KAUST’s most innovative laboratories. Since its inception, the KAUST MMH Labs has acted as a space where some of the leading minds at KAUST come together to create the future of technology today.
Nazek El-Atab, a postdoctoral research fellow, based in the KAUST MMH Labs has been chosen to attend the 70th Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting. After completing a thorough multi-stage application and selection process, El-Atab was selected to participate in the event scheduled to take place from June 28 to July 3, in Lindau, Germany.
