A cheer for Kevin Thompson, visiting scientist at The Institute of Optics, for receiving SPIE's 2013 A.E. Conrady Award. The award is given annually in recognition of exceptional contributions in design, construction, and testing of optical systems and instrumentation. Kevin is being recognized for his efforts to discover and develop a complete aberration theory for imaging optical systems, nodal aberration theory, that applies to rotationally nonsymmetric optical systems.
