Andrei Faraon, Assistant Professor of Applied Physics and Materials Science and inaugural KNI-Wheatley Scholar, has been chosen to receive the 2018 Adolph Lomb medal by the Optical Society of America. According to OSA, this award is given to a person who has made a noteworthy contribution to optics at an early career stage. OSA has chosen to recognize Faraon with this special honor for his "seminal contributions to on-chip quantum photonic technologies".

Andrei Faraon recently gave a presentation at the Earnest C. Watson lecture series on "Flat Metasurface Optics" and his research team developed a novel method for displaying two distinct holograms on the same surface.
