To recognize outstanding contributions to basic research which uses lasers to advance our knowledge of the fundamental physical properties of materials and their interaction with light.
To recognize doctoral research in the Laser Science area and to encourage effective written and oral presentation of research results.
Grants of up to $500 are available to assist DLS members who are bringing children to CLEO or FiO/LS or who incur extra expenses in leaving them at home (e.g., extra daycare or babysitting services). Funds will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. In the event that the number of requests for grants exceeds the funding available, preference will be given to applicants in the early stages of their careers.
Through this program, DLS provides partial funding (up to $500/grant) for a limited number of graduate students to attend and participate in our two major meetings, CLEO in the spring and Frontiers In Optics/Laser Science in the fall, as well as the APS March Meeting.
