Assistant professor Yong Lin Kong has been awarded as one of the twelve 2019 SPIE Rising Researchers for his work in “Multiscale additive manufacturing of electronics and biomedical devices.”

SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics. The Rising Researchers award recognizes early career professionals who are conducting outstanding work in product development or research in the defense, commercial, and scientific sensing, imaging, optics, or related fields. The 12 distinguished early-career professionals represent the broad spectrum and reach of photonics, from Industrial Sensing & Measurement and Electronic Imaging & Signal Processing, to Optical Design & Engineering, Astronomy, and Micro/Nano Fabrication. The awards will be presented in April 2019, at SPIE Defense + Commercial Sensing (DCS) in Baltimore, Maryland.

For more information on Kong’s research, publications and future work on 3D printing technologies as well as for exploring opportunities to join the research group, please visit the group’s website.
