9:00 AM-12:30 PM
Drexel University and The Franklin Institute will honor Dr. Kenichi Iga, Emeritus Professor and Past President of the Tokyo Institute of Technology and winner of the 2013 Bower Award for Achievement in Science at the Symposium, “Photonic Source Technologies: Surface Emitting Semiconductor Lasers." Iga will be recognized 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 that 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.
