Fresnel Prize for Daniele Brida

We congratulate Daniele Brida who was awarded the Fresnel Prize. It is awarded every two years by the European Physical Society for outstanding contributions to quantum electronics and optics made by young scientists before the age of 35. The jury´s motivation for choosing Daniele Brida was: “The 2015 Fresnel Prize for applied aspects is awarded to Daniele Brida, University of Konstanz, Konstanz, Germany, for the development of broadly tunable few-optical-cycle laser sources and their application in the investigation of primary photo-induced processes in condensed matter systems.” The award ceremony will take place on June 23 at the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics/Europe and the European Quantum Electronics Conference in Munich.
