Young Scientist AMOPD Prize

Young Scientist Prize 2019 of the AMOPD-EPS

The Young Scientist Prize 2019 of the Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics Division (AMOPD) of the European Physical Society (EPS) will be awarded to: 

  • Dr. Philipp Haslinger, Vienna University of Technology, Austria 

for his pioneeering contributions to the application of precision atom interferometry. His achievements include the ultrasensitive probe of candidates of dark matter by atom inerferometry thereby excluding so called Chameleon fields up to extremely large energy scales or small length scales and the first measurement of mechanical forces exerted on atoms by black-body radiation. 

The Young Scientist Prize is awarded at the major triannual conference of the AMOPD, the European conference on Atomic and Molecular Physics (ECAMP) to young scientists who have made original contributions to the field of atomic, molecular and optical physics within 8 years following their PhD. 
This year's prize will be awarded at ECAMP13 to be held in Firenze, Italy April 8-12, 2019. 

Integral part of the award is a plenary talk by the prize winner.
