Prism Awards 2022

Industry giants and emerging challengers will be honored at the Prism Awards in a ceremony in January 2022 at SPIE Photonics West. The annual event, now in its 14th year, recognizes industrial innovation in photonics in multiple categories. Organizers received 120 applications from 18 countries.

Rapidly growing technology areas such as quantum, displays, augmented and virtual reality, sensing, and autonomous transportation reflect the achievements of this year's entries and finalists. Newer companies such as Avegant, Class 5, and Stratio, will share the stage alongside industry heavyweights such as Hamamatsu, ColdQuanta, Toshiba, Leica, and ams Osram. With ten categories ranging from scientific lasers, quantum, and sensing to biomedical devices, industrial lasers, and software, the Prism Awards once again offer a terrific range of the latest products and technical innovations across optics and photonics.

"The 2022 Prism Award finalists represent the most impactful innovations of the optics and photonics industry," said SPIE CEO Kent Rochford. "Whether they are working on healthcare-related technologies, quantum-focused advances, or making self-driving vehicles safer for our roads, these are the scientists, engineers, and companies that are striving to make our lives better by bringing these exciting commercial products to market. We look forward to recognizing and congratulating all the nominees as well as announcing the winners in person at Photonics West."
