JILA graduate student Sarah Bromley won the Harry Lustig Award from the American Physical Society Four Corners Meeting.
The Harry Lustig Award was established in 2015 to remember Lustig's academic achievements and strong commitment to support the work of physics students through APS. The award recognizes outstanding graduate-level research by individuals working in one of the four corner states (AZ, NM, CO, and Utah).
The three finalists invited to present their research this year were Sarah Bromley (CU/JILA), Andrew Missert (CU), and Chandramouli Nyshadham (BYU). Bromley's presentation, entitlted “Probing Many-Body Physics in an Optical Lattice Clock”, detailed her research from the Ye lab at JILA. As the selected winner, Bromley will receive a $1000 stipend.
The APS Four Corners Meeting encourages students from the four corner states, as well as neighboring states, to present their research from a wide range of physics topics, including astrophysics, atomic molecular and optical, biophysics, condensed matter, materials science, nuclear, particle, and plasma physics, as well as physics education. The 2017 APS 4CS was held on October 20-21 at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado.
