SPIE George W. Goddard Award
Samuel Harvey Moseley (660)
This is given annually by the SPIE in recognition of exceptional achievement in optical or photonic instrumentation for aerospace, atmospheric science, or astronomy. Harvey Moseley received this award in recognition of his extraordinary inventions of superconducting imaging arrays for astronomy, ranging from submillimeter bolometers to energy sensitive X-ray microcalorimeters, and even dark matter detectors, as well as microshutter arrays for the James Webb Space Telescope near IR spectrometer.
