Kevin Cox received an Outstanding Presentation Award at the July 15, 2015, NIST Boulder Laboratories Postdoctoral Poster Symposium. Cox was recognized for his presentation “17 dB of Spin Squeezing with QND Measurements.” Cox is a graduate student in the James Thompson group at JILA. He co-authored the poster with Graham Greve, Joshua Weiner, and Thompson.

The award citation read, “The Outstanding Presentation Award is a special recognition for selected poster presenters at the Boulder Laboratories Postdoctoral Poster Symposium. This recognition was selected by senior scientists who circulated through the poster session and noted outstanding quality in both preparation of a poster and its oral presentation.

“For 2015, the program was divided into four groups of posters, along lines of subject matter and academic standing of presenters. In total, four awards were presented to postdoctoral, graduate, and undergraduate researchers. The 2015 Boulder Poster Symposium, held on July 15, is the 12th in this annual conference series. This award was initiated at the 1st symposium held in 2004, which was organized in honor of the Boulder Laboratories 50 Year Anniversary. The sponsor of this event is the Boulder Labs Diversity Council.”

Congratulations to Cox, Greve, Weiner, and Thompson!
