SPIE is the international society for optics and photonics, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1955 to advance light-based technologies. The Society serves more than 235,000 constituents from approximately 155 countries, offering conferences, continuing education, books, journals, and a digital library in support of interdisciplinary information exchange, professional growth, and patent precedent.

SPIE will promote 73 new Fellows of the Society this year, to recognize the significant scientific and technical contributions of each in the multidisciplinary fields of optics, photonics, and imaging. SPIE Fellows are honored for their technical achievements and for their service to the general optics community and to SPIE in particular. More than 1,300 SPIE members have become Fellows since the Society’s inception in 1955.

The annual recognition of Fellows provides an opportunity for SPIE to acknowledge Members for their outstanding technical contributions and service to SPIE.

Phil Bones has made significant research contributions in his field, in conjunction with his postgraduate students. Examples include: an analysis and simulation of a Compton scattering gamma camera, processing digital mammogram images to detect microcalcifications, a laser-based eye tracking system for detecting abnormal translational and torsional nystagmus, the use of subsampling to speed up magnetic resonance (MR) imaging, the detection and correction of motion in MR imaging and development of an MR algorithm for fat-water separation near metal.

He has played a leading role in the New Zealand imaging and optics community for over 20 years. He has had significant influence in and is a foundation member of the Australasian College of Physical Scientists and Engineers in Medicine.

Among his honours and awards are the Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship to perform research in Germany and the Boyce Worthley Prize for significant contribution to the physical and engineering sciences in medicine.
