Awards and Recognitions
2014      Rank Prize (UK), for “the idea that strained semiconductor lasers would have superior performance due to reduced valence band (hole) effective mass. Almost all semiconductor lasers use this concept, including for optical telecommunications, in most mouse-clicks, for DVD players, and in the ubiquitous red laser pointers.”
2013      Elected as Foreign Member of the Royal Society of London
2012      Elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences
2012      Harvey Prize of Israel for “pioneering discoveries in photonics, optoelectronics and semiconductors, that impacted our lives.”
2012      IEEE Photonics Award for “pioneering contributions to photonic crystals, the photonic bandgap, and photonic bandgap engineering.”
2010      Mountbatten Medal of the British IET for “outstanding contributions to electronics.”
2005      Northrop Grumman Optoelectronics Chair in Electrical Engineering, UCLA
