With the motivation ‘For pioneering contributions to the development of periodically poled materials and important contributions to laser physics and nonlinear optics’, the OSA has elected Fredrik Laurell as a Fellow. The chairman of the Swedish Optical Society, SOS, and professor for laser physics at KTH, Sweden, is not a no- name within the EOS either. Since December 2011 he has acted as a section editor for JEOS:RP; before that he held the position as chairman of the EOS Advisory Committee. Fredrik Laurell received his MSc (Electrical Engineering, LTH) and PhD (Physics, KTH) in 1983 and 1990, respectively. During 1990-1991 he was a visiting research scientist at DuPont Experimental Station, Wilmington, DE, USA and during 1992-1993

JEOS:RP draws a positive balance

for 2011 2011 was a very successful year for the journal. A 33 per cent increase in the impact factor along with a 36 per cent decrease in the time-to- publication count among the most important achievements. At the same time, the total number of paper submissions increased by 25 per cent, while the acceptance ratio went down by 55 per cent to 31 per cent and the rejection ratio rose by 111 per cent to 38 per cent rejected papers.

JEOS:RP is therefore on track to meeting its goal of being an important platform for publication in the fields of classical and quantum optics.

JEOS:RP section editor Fredrik Laurell elected Fellow of the Optical Society of America

a project manager at the Institute of Optical Research, Stockholm, Sweden. He was employed as research associate at KTH in 1993, lecturer 1999 and professor of physics in 2001. Since 2006 he has been the Deputy Head at the Department of Applied Physics at KTH. He also chairs the Optics section at the Royal Academy of Science and is Deputy Director for ADOPT, the Linneus Centre in Photonics. Besides he initiated

the foundation of PhotonicSweden 2010. Laurell’s research spans studies of optical materials, nonlinear optics and laser physics. He has authored or co-authored more than 200 journal papers and holds 13 patents. He has also founded four companies and received the Göran Gustafsson Prize in Physics 2003.

EOS Affiliated Society SEDOPTICA calls for applications for Justiniano Casas Prize

The Spanish Optical Society Committee for Image Techniques awaits applications for the third edition of the Justiniano Casas Prize for Research in Optical Imaging (a deadline of 29 February 2012). The main objective of this SEDOPTICA committee is to encourage the development of knowledge in the field of imaging techniques and related areas, in particular, in the fields of scientific research, education and industrial and commercial applications. The award will be presented to a

member of SEDOPTICA whose PhD thesis is related to research in optical imaging and who has achieved the highest grade in the defence of his/ her work. The oral thesis examination must have taken place between 1 January 2009 and 31 December 2010. An amount of 1,000 euros for the winner and an amount of 500 euros for the runner-up will be awarded by the five-person jury. Read more in the call for applications at http://sedoptica. index.htm.

Call for nominations for the EOS Board of Directors

2012 is an election year for the EOS Board. Five seats will have to be filled; all EOS members are entitled to nominate up to three candidates.


Nominations may be made either by letter or by e-mail until 31 March 2012. Detailed instructions are to be found at
