IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Optics 2009 PDF Print E-mail

 The International Commission of Optics (ICO) is introducing a new award to recognize outstanding scientists in optics and photonics.
In 2005 the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) created the Young Scientist Prizes for its commissions. The ICO, as an Affiliated Commission of IUPAP, decided in 2008 to adopt the IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Optics to recognize the scientific achievements of outstanding young scientists in applied optics and photonics. The prize will be awarded annually to a scientist with a maximum of 8 years of research experience (excluding career interruptions) following the PhD degree. The winner receives a medal prepared by IUPAP and a check for €1000.

Nominations for the 2009 IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Optics are now solicited. The deadline for submission of nominations is 15 July 2009. The general rules and full details of the nomination and selection procedures are available on the ICO website, www.ico.optics.org. Information can also be obtained from the Chair of IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Optics Committee, Professor Ari T. Friberg ( This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it ).
