Stephen Harris, the Kenneth and Barbara Oshman Professor in the School of Engineering and Professor of Applied Physics, Emeritus, was recently elected as an Honorary Member of the Optical Society of America (OSA). According to the OSA, Harris was selected for his "pioneering and profoundly influential contributions to the science of light, including optical parametric emission, lasing without inversion, electromagnetically induced transparency, and single cycle optical pulse generation."

Honorary Membership is OSA’s most distinguished membership status. Harris joins a group of only 45 OSA Honorary Members elected since the Society was founded in 1916.
