Optica Laser Congress and Exhibition

Student Paper Competition

Many Optica Topical Meetings recognize the excellent work of student researchers through the awarding of student paper prizes. You must opt in during the paper submission process to be considered for the prize.

Congratulations to the winners.

The Optica 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.

Finalists were selected during the Technical Program Committee (TPC) review process. After the papers are presented at the meeting, Program Committee members will select award recipients based on quality of content, value to the technical community of interest and presentation skills.
