30 May 2017 2017 Prize for Fundamental Aspects of Quantum Electronics and Optics

Niek van Hulst

The European Physical Society awards its highest prize to Prof. Niek van Hulst Every two years, the Quantum Electronics and Optics division (QEOD) of the European Physical Society (EPS) names the winners of its two most prestigious prizes in Quantum Electronics and Optics. These prizes recognize the highest level of achievements in fundamental and applied research in optical physics.

This year’s Prize for Fundamental Aspects of Quantum Electronics and Optics goes to ICREA Prof at ICFO Niek van Hulst for “pioneering contributions to nano-optics and its applications to molecular spectroscopy and to ultrafast light-matter interactions.”

The prize for Applied Apects of Quantum Electronics and Optics goes to Prof. Victor Malka, CNRS research director at the Laboratoire d’Optique Appliquée, Palaiseau, France and Professor at the Weizmann Institute for Science, Rehovot, Israel.

The awards will be presented in a special Plenary Ceremony on Tuesday, June 27, 2017 (10:30 - 12:30, Room 1) during the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics Europe (CLEO®/Europe) and the European Quantum Electronics Conference (EQEC), held in Munich, Germany.
