For his research work on "Active large-core fibers for ultrashort pulse lasers", the Jena laser researcher Dr. Fabian Stutzki has been awarded the Carl Zeiss Award for Young Researchers 2018. The award ceremony took place at the ZEISS Symposium »Optics in the Quantum World« in Oberkochen with of about 200 international scientists and leading industry representatives.The optics group ZEISS has announced this year's winners of its science award, the ZEISS Research Award. Two professors share this award: Tobias Kippenberg and Jean-Pierre Wolf, professors at the Laboratory of Pho

tonics and Quantum Measurements at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and the Biophotonics Institute of the University of Geneva. Three young scientists were also awarded the Carl Zeiss Award for Young Researchers - among them our Alumnus Dr. Fabian Stutzki, now working at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering in Jena.For the first time, Stutzki was able to re

alize effectively single-mode fibers with a core diameter of more than 100 times of the guided wavelength. This world record is made possible by a fundamentally new principle of action: the "delocalization of modes of higher order", which was developed as part of his doctoral thesis and was extensively examined and extended in the publication Optica 1, 233-242, 2014.Institute Director Prof. Andreas Tünnermann congratulates: "With his work, Dr. Stutzki ha

s laid a crucial foundation for further research of fiber laser technologies. We are very pleased that the jury recognized the potential of his approach. The award is an indicator of the excellence of our standing in the scientific community. Dr. Stutzki´s high degree of innovation in his research work illustrates his assertion against such high-ranking competitors."

The award winners were selected by a top-class panel of experts, including the former winner of the Young Researcher Award and Nobel Laureate in Chemistry, Prof. Stefan Hell.

Independent of the ZEISS Research Award, the Ernst Abbe Fund as part of the Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft has been awarding the an award with a focus on young scientists since 2016: the Carl Zeiss Award for Young Researchers. The prize is endowed with a total sum of 21,000 euros.

The awarded research work of Fabian Stutzki was part of the "Photonics Performance Center", a joint initiative of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF and the Friedrich Schiller University Jena, especially the Institute of Applied Physics (IAP).

To your success also very warm congratulations from the IAP!
