Professor Zhipei Sun from the Aalto University School of Electrical Engineering has been elected as as a Fellow Member of The Optical Society (OSA). Professor Sun is honoured specifically for pioneering contributions to photonic and optoelectronic applications with low-dimensional materials.

Fellow membership in OSA is limited to no more than ten percent of the membership and is reserved for members who have served with distinction in the advancement of optics and photonics in education, research, engineering and business.

Zhipei Sun is associate professor and research group leader at the Department of Electronics and Nanoengineering. His research is focused on various photonic applications with two-dimensional layered materials, and in a current project supported by EU quantum flagship, his aim is to generate single-photon sources for quantum communication and computing.

Prof. Sun is also actively involved in the Academy of Finland's Photonics Research and Innovation platform (PREIN) and the national Centre of Excellence – Quantum Technology Finland (QTF).

OSA Board of Directors elected altogether 118 members from 24 countries to the Society’s 2021 Fellow Class. Founded in 1916, OSA is the leading professional association in optics and photonics, home to accomplished science, engineering, and business leaders from all over the world.
