Congratulation to Emna Amri who has been awarded a 2018 Optics and Photonics Education Scholarship by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, for her potential contributions to the field of optics, photonics or related field.

The SPIE scholarship award announcement:

Amri a is a PhD student in the Quantum Technologies Laboratory led by Prof. Hugo Zbinden in the Group of Applied Physics at the University of Geneva (Switzerland). Her research focuses on single photon detection for quantum communication and she has been investigating several technologies such as III-V and superconductive nanowire single photon detectors. Amri co-authored several papers and proceedings, co-filed a “first inventor” patent on the use of quanta image sensors for quantum random number generation, as well as participating several photonics outreach activities. She is also a part- time research engineer at ID Quantique SA in Switzerland.
