IUPAP Young Scientist Prize in Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics

The ICPEAC IUPAP Prize rewards a young researcher who has a leading personal role in the achievement of original and outstanding contributions to the field of AMO physics.

Information on the previous awards at ICPEAC Conferences

Being allotted annually alternately with the International Conference on Atomic Physics (ICAP), regarding the ICPEAC Conferences, the IUPAP prize has been awarded four times:

  • in 2007, at the Freiburg meeting to Robin Santra, an Assistant Physicist in the Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Group of the Chemistry division of Argonne National laboratory, United States, for his work on "Strong-field control of x-ray absorption"
  • in 2009, at the Kalamazoo meeting to Johan Mauritsson, an assistant professor in atomic physics at the Faculty of Engineering from Lund University, Sweden, for his work on "Attosecond Electron Interferometry"
  • in 2011, at the Belfast meeting to Dr. Ian B. Spielman, a young physicist from the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg, MD, USA, for his work on "novel experiments involving optical manipulation of ultracold gases".
  • in 2013, at the Lanzhou meeting to Dr. Till Jahnke, from the Experimental Atomic Physics group at the Institut für Kernphysik, Johann Wolfgang Goethe Universität, Frankfurt, Germany, for his work on "A measurement of the evolution of Interatomic Coulombic Decay in the time domain".
  • in 2015, at the Toledo meeting to Dr. Gretchen K. Campbell, from the Joint Quantum Institute at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Gaithersburg, MD, USA for her work on "Toroidal Bose-Einstein condensates and their application to "atomtronic" circuits".
  • in 2017, at the Cairns meeting to Dr. Johannes Feist, from the Condensed Matter Physics Center (IFIMAC) Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain for his work on "Modifications of molecular structure under strong light-matter coupling".
