Prof. Zheludev elected as new Foreign Member of National Academy of Engineering (NAE)

In recognition of the leadership and technical contributions to optical metamaterials and nanophotonics, Prof. Zheludev has been elected as a Foreign Member of the United States National Academy of Engineering.

Election to the National Academy of Engineering is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to "engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature" and to "the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education."

Individuals in the newly elected class will be formally inducted during a ceremony at the NAE's annual meeting in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 6, 2019.
