The EPS-QEOD Quantum Electronics and Optics Prizes:
Among its most prestigious prizes, the
Quantum Electronics and Optics division (QEOD) of the European Physical
Society (EPS) distributes the Quantum Electronics and Optics Prizes.
These are the two senior EPS/QEOD prizes (one for fundamental, one
for applied aspects) awarded for outstanding contributions to quantum
electronics and optics. These Prizes, awarded in uneven years,
recognize the highest level of achievements in fundamental and applied
research in optical physics.
The EPS-QEOD Fresnel Prizes:
The EPS-QEOD Thesis Prizes:
Since 2007 up to four EPS/QEOD Thesis Prizes are awarded to reward excellence in PhD research and scientific communication in the area of quantum electronics and optics related to a PhD thesis work defended in the period June 2017 – June 2019 (in the two years prior to the conference). These Prizes are awarded for fundamental and applied aspects. The prize winners are each to receive a diploma and 1000 euros.
Vladilen Letokhov Medal:
Established in memory of Vladilen Letokhov
(1939-2009), former Vice-Director of the Institute of Spectroscopy of
the Russian Academy of Sciences and pioneer in several fields of laser
physics, the Letokhov Medal aims at recognizing outstanding
contributions in laser-matter interaction, in particular spectroscopy of
atoms and molecules, laser manipulation of atoms, and strong field
processes. The prize consists of a medal, a certificate and a monetary
award of 5000 euros.
The medal will be presented every odd year at a major conference alternatively sponsored by the Quantum Electronics and Optics Division and the Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics Division of the EPS.
