Dutch industry association Netelcom awarded its fourth Netelcom Award for the best Dutch telecom innovation to Katarzyna Lawniczuk. As a PhD student at the Technical University of Eindhoven, Lawniczuk built Photonic Multi Wavelength Transmitter prototypes for use in Optical Access Networks. Lawniczuk's PhD thesis was entitled "Peerless light and integrated photonics for telecommunication." According to Jeanine van der Vlist, chairman at Netelcom and general manager at Alcatel-Lucent Netherlands, the increasing demand for capacity is calling for new, technological and energy efficient systems for for broadband multimedia use. In this context, Lawniczuk was able to create a substantial paradigm shift in the way photonic chipsets are developed, designed, manufactured, tested and applied in everyday life. The Netelcom Award is awarded every two years, given for innovative scientific contributions that drastically improve Dutch telecommunications infrastructure. The jury included Jim Stolze (chairman, CEO TEDxAmsterdam), Nico Baken (TU Delft), Ton Backx (TU Eindhoven), Erik Fledderus (TNO), Gerlas van den Hoven (Genexis and Netelcom ) and Van der Vlist.
