IUPAP Prize

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.

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

The prize will be awarded during the XXX International Conference on Photonic, Electronic and Atomic Collisions (ICPEAC 2017) to be held in Cairns, Australia, 26 July - 1 August, 2017. The prize includes a medal, a EURO 1000 award and an invited presentation in plenary at ICPEAC 2017.

Nominations should be submitted before 31st March 2017 via e-mail to toshiyuki-azuma@riken.jp

Further information can be found on the IUPAP website

Nominations should include a brief paragraph stating the acheivement for which the nominee is recognized and a curriculum vitae detailing all publications. Self nominations will not be considered and for collaborative work the leading personal contribution of the nominee should be identified. To qualify as a 'Young Scientist' a nominee should have had no more than 8 years post-PhD research experience prior to 1 January 2017, accounting for career interruptions. For uninterrupted careers, nominees should have received their PhD no earlier than 2009.

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".
