Every year, the Frontiers in Optics conference holds the Emil Wolf Outstanding Student Paper Competition, acknowledging the excellence of students in presenting their work at the conference in both paper and poster form. This year, JILA graduate student Jeremy Thurston of the Murnane and Kapteyn research groups showcased his work in both a paper and presentation titled: “Bright Tunable Ultrafast Deep- and Vacuum-Ultraviolet Harmonic Combs,” which was awarded a prize by the judges for excellence in communication.

“I’m very honored to be selected by the FiO committee for this award and want to extend my congratulations to the many collaborators at JILA and KMLabs that contributed to this work,” stated Thurston about the award. Congratulations, Jeremy!
