Frederic Ives Medal/Jarus W. Quinn Prize for Ursula Keller

WASHINGTON — The Optical Society (OSA), the leading global professional association in optics and photonics, today announced that the 2020 Frederic Ives Medal/Jarus W. Quinn Prize will be presented to Ursula Keller, ETH Zurich, Switzerland.

Keller is honored for fundamental contributions to ultrafast lasers technology, especially in the development of high peak and average power oscillators and important breakthroughs in attosecond science.

“Ursula Keller shines as an extraordinary leader in the optics and photonics community, providing fundamental research pivotal to the development of ultrafast lasers technology,” said 2020 OSA President Stephen D. Fantone, founder and president of the Optikos Corporation. “Keller’s many accomplishments have contributed to significant advancements in the field of applied optics.”

Ursula Keller received a Physics “Diplom” from ETH Zurich, Switzerland and a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Stanford University, USA. During her first year at Stanford, she held a Fulbright Fellowship, and for the following year was an IBM Predoctoral Fellow. She was a Member of Technical Staff at AT&T Bell Laboratories, USA from 1989 to 1993 where she conducted research on photonic switching, ultrafast laser systems, and semiconductor spectroscopy. Keller joined ETH Zurich as a tenured professor of physics in 1993 and currently serves as a director of the NCCR MUST, an interdisciplinary research program launched by the Swiss National Science Foundation to bring together Swiss research groups working in Ultrafast Science across the fields of physics, chemistry and biology.
