"Boon Ooi, KAUST professor of electrical engineering, was recently elected as a fellow of the Optical Society of America (OSA) during the organization's annual meeting, which was held on September 18 in Washington, D.C. Ooi, who works in the University’s Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Sciences and Engineering Division, was recognized by the OSA for his pioneering contributions to optoelectronic device technologies—in particular those in light-emitting devices in visible wavelengths—and their applications to lighting and optical communications."
"Ooi, who is also the director of the KACST - Technology Innovation Center (TIC) for Solid-State Lighting, joins a distinguished group of members who have served the OSA and the optics and photonics community with distinction."
"“It is a great privilege. I owe this recognition to my students, both past and present, and supportive colleagues, collaborators and mentors,” Ooi said. He is also a fellow of the International Society for Optics and Photonics (SPIE) and is a fellow of the Institute of Physics, London."
