Laser Damage Annual Awards

SPIE Awards

Annual Awards for Laser Damage

Each year, in honor of the symposium's founding organizers and key chairs, one presentation is selected in each of three categories — oral, poster, and student presentation — by conference co-chairs on the basis of scientific excellence and quality of presentation. The Laser Damage Annual Awards were established in honor of the founding organizers and include: 

THE ALEXANDER GLASS BEST ORAL PRESENTATION AWARD
1st Place Best Oral Presentation, $500 and honorary plaque

THE ARTHUR GUENTHER BEST POSTER AWARD
1st Place Best Poster Presentation, $500 and honorary plaque

THE MJ SOILEAU BEST STUDENT PAPER AWARD
1st Place Best Student Presentation, $500 and honorary plaque

Historical precedence: 

The annual Best Oral Presentation and the Best Poster Awards were renamed in 2016 to honor the founding organizers for this meeting. In 2017, The MJ Soileau Best Student Paper Award was added to the annual awards. These awards are intended to foster participation and advance the research in laser-induced damage, development of materials for high power lasers, and associated technologies, and will provide some financial assistance to researchers, engineers, and students involved in the laser damage community. 

The awards are supported and approved by the Laser Damage Co-Chairs, with funds matched by SPIE.

Requirements:

Submission of a manuscript to the conference proceedings is a condition of receiving an award.

Announced:

Awards are announced during the call for papers for the next year's symposium, and winners are honored at the opening ceremony of upcoming Laser Damage Symposium with a memorable glass piece and a small monetary honorarium.


The awards program will resume this year for our 2021 event. Winners from the 2021 program will be announced in Spring 2022.
