Nick Vamivakas wins 2013 IUPAP C17 prize for young scientists

It was just announced that one of the faculty members of The Institute of Optics, Professor Nick Vamivakas, won the 2013 IUPAP C17 prize in Quantum Electronics for young scientists in the category of applied aspects. 

This year, the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) had 12 very strong nominations for the prize in fundamental and applied aspects from various countries, so that the jury for the prize had a very difficult task to select the winners. This makes it even more prestigious that Dr. Nickolas Vamivakas was clearly selected by all the international jury members as a winner in the applied aspects category. 

Nick will travel to Taiwan during the first week of December to present his latest research and to receive his award during the award ceremony at the International Optics&Photonics Taiwan Conference in Zhongli.

Congratulations to Nick for his international prize!
