Ohno Honored for Vision
Ohno, a long-recognized leader within the Sensor Science Division’s Optical Radiation Group, was honored for “many contributions to the advancement of solid state lighting. From the very beginning of the SSL revolution, Yoshi and his team at NIST performed critical research on photometry and colorimetry related to SSL sources.
"Through the course of their research, Yoshi and his team contributed to the development of a vast number of LED standards in a record amount of time. This paved the way to a more rapid and orderly introduction of SSL products to the marketplace.”
Ohno received the award at the 2014 DOE SSL R&D Workshop in Tampa, FL.
PML Deputy Director Jim Olthoff will give the Thursday, March 13 keynote address at the upcoming Measurement Science Conference in Long Beach, CA. Title: “Advancing Measurement Science to Support Manufacturing Competitiveness”
