The Quantum Electronics and Optics division (QEOD) of the European Physical Society is presently soliciting nominations for their biennial prizes, which are to be presented in 2007 at the CLEO/Europe-IQEC meeting in Munich in June 2007.

 

EPS Quantum Electronics Prize: These are the two senior EPS/QEOD prizes awarded on a biennial basis for outstanding contributions to quantum electronics and optics. There is one prize for fundamental aspects and one prize for applied aspects. The prize winners are each to receive a medal and €5000.

 

Fresnel Prize: These are the two EPS/QEOD prizes awarded on a biennial basis for outstanding contributions to quantum electronics and optics made by young scientists before the age of 35. There is one prize for fundamental aspects and one prize for applied aspects. The prize winners are each to receive a medal and €3000.

 

There is no nomination form for these prizes, but letters of nomination should contain a one page CV, a brief description of the nominee’s achievements, a list of key publications, patents, etc., and at least two letters of endorsement of the nomination. The letter should be prepared in pdf-format.

 

Additionally from 2007, QEOD announces a PhD thesis prize:

 

QEOD Thesis Prize: Up to four EPS/QEOD prizes will be awarded on a biennial basis for the best nominated PhD theses in the area of quantum electronics and optics submitted in the two years prior to the CLEO/Europe-IQEC meeting. These prizes will be awarded for fundamental and for applied aspects. The prize winners are each to receive a medal and €2000 and EPS will also pay the winners' reasonable travel expenses to attend the CLEO/Europe-IQEC conference.

 

These prizes are nominated on the basis of recommendation from at least one of the PhD-thesis examiners (who should not be the nominated student's supervisor or from the same institution). Such letters of recommendation should be written in English, submitted electronically in pdf-format. They should contain a short summary of the achievements reported in the nominated thesis together with a list of associated publications and reasons why the thesis is particularly deserving of the appropriate thesis prize.

 

All nominations should be emailed to Sarah (s.jung@eps.org) on, or before, 5th March, 2007. Also, please note that the prize receivers need to be an EPS QEOD member at the time of the nomination.
