Falko Schmidt nominated for a Student Paper Prize at the Biophotonics Congress

April 15, 2021

Falko Schmidt has been nominated by the Optical Society of America for a Student Paper Prize for Optical Manipulation and its Applications among three other finalists. He will present his work on the Dynamics of an Active Nanoparticle in an Optical Trap at the Optical Manipulation and its Applications meeting as part of the 2021 OSA Biophotonics Congress: Optics in Life Sciences.

Based on the oral presentations of the finalists a jury will select a winner. Falko Schmidt is presenting on April 16th at 12:30pm (CEST).

This work is based on a recent article published in Nature Communications.
