Congratulations to Professor Martin Booth who has been awarded the 2014 International Commission for Optics (ICO) Prize “for his innovative and pioneering research on dynamic optical methods and new approaches to adaptive optics”.
Professor Booth is head of the Dynamics Optics and Photonics Group at the University of Oxford, UK. He is also the chairman of the Oxford Photonics Network. His research group is based jointly in the Department of Engineering Science (link) and the Centre for Neural Circuits and Behaviour (link). Professor Booth’s research concerns the development of dynamic optical methods for a range of interdisciplinary applications. His work has led to advances in biomedical imaging, including adaptive aberration correction in confocal, multi-photon and wide-field sectioning microscopy.
