Two JILA graduate students and one undergraduate student were recognized with awards for their posters and presentations at the recent Boulder Laboratories Postdoctoral Poster Symposium, held at NIST Boulder (325 Broadway) on Wednesday, June 18, 2014. The Outstanding Presentation Award is a special recognition for selected poster presenters at the Boulder Laboratories Postdoctoral Poster Symposium. This recognition was selected by senior scientists who circulated through the poster session and noted outstanding quality in both preparation of a poster and its oral presentation.

Undergraduate student Andrew Barentine was recognized with an Outstanding Presentation Award for his presentation "Non-Equilibrium Steady State Oscillations in Isotropic Traps," with co-authors Dan Lobser, Heather Lewandowski and Eric Cornell.

Graduate student Craig Benko was recognized with an Outstanding Presentation Award for his presentation " Phase Coherent Extreme Ultraviolet Radiation," with co-authors Craig Benko, Thomas K. Allison, Arman Cingöz, Linqiang Hua, François Labaye, Dylan C. Yost and Jun Ye.

Graduate student Matt Norcia was recognized with an Outstanding Presentation Award for his presentation "Reduced Back Action for Improved Spin Squeezing," with co-authors Justin Bohnet, Kevin Cox, Joshua Weiner, Zilong Chen and James K. Thompson.

Congratulations to Andrew, Craig and Matt!

The 2014 Boulder Poster Symposium, held on June 18, is the 11th in this annual conference series. This award was initiated at the 1st symposium held in 2004, which had been organized in honor of the Boulder Laboratories 50 Year Anniversary, and continues to showcase the immense contributions to research by our students at every academic level.
