As part of last week's Honors Ceremony of the IEEE in San Diego (US), ETH physics professor Ursula Keller received the Edison Medal, in recognition of her innovations that have pushed the frontiers in ultrafast science and technology.

The IEEE Honors Ceremony is a part of the IEEE Vision, Innovation, and Challenges (VIC) Summit, which – according to their website – "brings together leading innovators, visionaries, and disruptors in technology to discuss, explore, and uncover what is imminent, what is possible, and what these emerging technologies mean for our future." The highlight of the event is the awards ceremony, in which the IEEE Medals and Recognitions recipients are celebrated.

Among those whose achievements were recognised this year was Ursula Keller, head of the Ultrafast Laser Physics Group at the Institute for Quantum Electronics of ETH Zurich. For her career achievements, she was awarded the 2019 IEEE Edison Medal. The medal has been presented since 1909, to an individual for a career of meritorious achievement in electrical science, electrical engineering, or the electrical arts.
