2014 Fizeau Prize Laureates : Christoph Leinert and William Tango
The Fizeau Prize for Contributions to Astronomical Optical Interferometry is jointly sponsored by Commission 54 of the International Astronomical Union and the Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur (OCA). The purpose of the Fizeau Prize is to provide recognition within the interferometry community, as well as in the broader science community, of theoretical and technical progress and developments in the rapidly growing field of optical interferometry, and to assist the OCA and the IAU Commission with engaging the community in promoting the future of optical interferometry. The OCA includes research departments that have a long and continuing history of innovative contributions to the development of optical interferometry.
The Henri Poincaré Junior Program of Côte d’Azur Observatory is open. This one proposes internships for international students wishing to perform a scientific training in one of the laboratories of the observatory. Those who agree to pay a contribution of EUR 250 trainees they present. The laureates will receive up to 2200 euros for a training period of 2 months or more.
