    team — The Austrian scientist Professor Dr. Reinhard Kienberger, Chair of Laser and X-Ray Physics at the Technische Universität München and Max Planck Fellow at MPQ, will receive the »2016 Prize for Research in Laser Science and Applications« from the European Physical Society (EPS). The European Physical Society is an association whose members include 42 National Physical Societies in Europe, representing more than a hundred thousand physicists. The EPS prize for Research in Laser Science and Applications is one of the most important scientific awards in the field of laser physics in Europe. The prize is given every two years through the Quantum Electronics & Optics Division (QEOD) of the EPS for recent achievements in laser science. Prof. Reinhard Kienberger has been elected for »his seminal contributions to establishing the basic techniques for attosecond science with laser-based as well as accelerator-based sources«. The award ceremony will take place on 25 August 2016 on the occasion of the 7\(^{th}\) EPS-QEOD Europhoton Conference in Vienna.
