The Emmett N. Leith Medal, established in 2006, honors Emmett N. Leith, a world-renowned scientist in holography and optical information processing. Leith was a pioneer of coherent optics in radar systems and is credited with developing modern holography in the early 1960s.

This award recognizes seminal contributions to the field of optical information processing. Tsujiuchi was awarded for early pioneering work in optical information processing, holography, and optical metrology, including the first demonstration of coherent optical processing for image restoration.
