Capolino Elected as Optica Fellow

Jan. 29, 2024 - Filippo Capolino, professor of electrical engineering and computer science, has been named a fellow of Optica (formerly the Optical Society of America). One of 129 members from 26 countries elected to the 2024 Class of Fellows, Capolino was recognized for “fundamental contributions to optics in complex materials and exceptional points.”

Capolino’s research interests include metamaterials and their applications, electron beam devices, plasmonics, microscopy, optical devices, wireless systems, antennas, sensors in both microwave and optical ranges, millimeter wave technology and applied electromagnetics in general. He was named an IEEE fellow in 2020.

Optica fellowships are limited to 10 percent of the society’s total membership, and are bestowed on members who have distinctively advanced optics and photonics through distinguished contributions to education, research, engineering, business and society.

The new fellows will be honored at Optica conferences and events throughout 2024.
