TÜBA Associate Member and Northwestern University Faculty Member Asst. Prof. Koray Aydın was awarded the Office of Naval Research (ONR) 2017 Young Investigator Award.
Aydin was one of the three names working in the field of nanophotonics and was among the 33 award-winning scientists among 360 applicants from all fields of basic science and engineering.
Koray Aydın said that the award is very valuable, and added: “One of the most important criterions is to present a project that shows the originality of the contributions that the researcher has made in the past and the continuation of these contributions in the future. This prize is one of the greatest awards a young scientist can receive, especially in America. They will give me a budget of $ 510,000 for three years to do my research. This award will not only support my projects but will also give me and research group prestige and awareness in the science community. This award means that the authenticity of our work and the contributions we make to technology in the future will also be recognized by the American State.”
Underlining that they will design and produce thin optical materials and devices, Aydin said they will combine new design techniques and nanofabrication methods to design lenses with a thickness of 100 nm. Koray Aydin stated that it would be possible to reduce the thickness of the spectacle lenses to a level that could not be felt thanks to the studies carried out. “In nanoscale dimensions, the interaction with the light material creates new physical properties. I will also use these features to develop new and efficient optical and photonic devices.” Koray Aydın said.
ONR is a research office of the US Department of Defense with a research budget of $ 1.7 billion. Young Investigator Award Program, which is given to distinguished and the best young scientist in their field, is an important support program for young scientists to meet ONR and continue to receive projects from here on.
