Director Zhang named AAAS fellow

November 26, 2013

Congratulations to Xi-Cheng Zhang, Director of The Institute of Optics and the M. Parker Givens Professor of Optics, for being elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. This is a prestigious award, the kind that Universities routinely cite as a benchmark of faculty excellence. Xi-Cheng was elected for "distinguished contributions to the generation and detection of broadband terahertz waves, particularly for free-space electro-optic sampling and terahertz air photonics with femtosecond lasers." Well done, Xi-Cheng, and well earned!
