in MSE Spotlight Alumni, NEWS

Congratulations to the winners of the MSE Division Student Photo Contest!

There were so many awesome photos submitted that the MSE leadership committee had a difficult time choosing first, second and third place, so they decided to give one first place prize and three second place prizes.   Thank you to everyone who submitted a photo!

First Place: Khwanchai Tantiwanichapan (Advisor: Roberto Paiella)

Green laser light at 532 nm is coupled into a spool of single mode optical fiber (1.5 km). Part of the light goes into the cladding of that fiber causing the glowing. The green shining cylinder on the left is the optical fiber on a plastic spool. The bright line-shape object on the right is the input fiber pigtail. (Photographer: Lu Yan)
