Spark Award Finalist

On March 19, 2019, ETH Zurich presented the Spark Award 2019. The award recognizes the most promising invention, which the ETH technology transfer office filed for a patent in 2018.

Dr. Shawn Divitt (formerly of the Photonics Lab, now research physicist at KeyW Corporation)  and Prof. Dr. Lukas Novotny were one of the five finalists for the SPARK Award, which was officially announced during a very nice ceremony.

Shawn had completed his PhD in the Photonics Laboratory on optical coherence of sunlight and together with Lukas they used their findings to invent a method to potentially increase the data transmission rates via spatial correlation coding. Check out the YouTube video below!
