Congratulations to former Laser Analyticist Weiwei Cai, who has won the prestigious SAOT Young Researcher Award at the Erlangen School of Advanced Optical Technologies.  The €100,000 prize is won in international competition and recognition of significant research achievements at an early career stage.  Weiwei has developed a range of innovative technologies around laser based absorption tomography and invented the concept of frequency agile absorption tomography, which combines ultra fast wavelength sweeping methods with advanced inversion algorithms to provide volumetric data from exothermic reactions, e.g. to probe clean combustion concepts etc.  Some of these techniques were developed in collaboration with the Laser Analytics Group.  For an overview of his work, see a recent review article

Weiwei was a postdoc in the group for two extraordinarily productive years between 2013 to 2015 and has since taken up a full Professorship at Shanghai Jiaotong University.   

Many congratulations Weiwei on winning this prestigious award!
