2013 Bower Award and Prize for Achievement in Science, honoring Dr. Kenichi Iga
Start Date: 4/24/2013Start Time: 9:30 AM
End Date: 4/24/2013End Time: 12:30 PM

Event Description
Dr. Kenichi Iga, Emeritus Professor and Past President of the Tokyo Institute of Technology will be honored with this year's Bower Award and Prize for Achievement in Science. He will be honored for creating one of the world's major technological breakthroughs that impacts society every day — the vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser, or VCSEL for short. VCSELs are found in laser printers, pointers, the scanner in the supermarket checkout line, high-speed data networks, data storage devices, and even the optical computer mouse on their desktop. All of these technologies are made possible by small and efficient semiconductor lasers that Dr. Iga first proposed in 1977.

This event is sponsored by Drexel University and the Franklin Institute. It is free and open to the public.
