QEOD Thesis Prizes

Since 2007 EPS/QEOD thesis prizes are awarded on a biennial basis for the best-nominated Ph.D thesis in the area of quantum electronics and optics submitted in the two years prior to the CLEO®/Europe-I(E)QEC meetings. These prizes are awarded for fundamental and applied aspects.
