Congratulations to the Student Paper Award Finalists!

The Laser Congress recognizes the next generation of scientists through a student presentation competition. To qualify for an award, the paper must have been presented by an undergraduate or graduate student of an educational institution of collegiate grade.

The Optica Foundation Student Paper Competition

The papers submitted to the competition were reviewed during the standard Technical Program Committee (TPC) review process and 4 finalists were selected. After the papers are presented at the conference, the Program Committee members will make their selections based on content quality, value to the technical community of interest, and the students' presentation skills.
