Michael Peng, a RLE graduate student working with Franz Kärtner in the Optics and Quantum Electronics Group has been awarded Best Paper in the graduate student competition at the IFCS 2014 Conference.

His paper entitled “Long-Term Stable Balanced Optical-Microwave Phase Detector with Sub-Femtosecond Residual Timing Jitter Capability for Optical-to-RF Extraction”, was presented at the 2014 IEEE Int’l Frequency Control Symposium, held in Taipei, Taiwan May 19-22, 2014. The Symposium highlights manufacturing methods and technologies that realize emerging products in MEMS resonator-based devices, quartz micro-clocks, and advanced atomic frequency standards. Michael’s area of research is sub-femtosecond timing distribution for next-generation free electron laser facilities, with an emphasis on microwave photonic systems.
