Yu Wu was awarded 1st place in the “Best Student Oral Presentation Award” competition at MIOMD 2023 in Norman Oklahoma, for her presentation on “RF Injection Locking of THz Metasurface Quantum-Cascade-VECSEL: Effect of Cavity Length Variation” by Yu Wu, C. Curwen, J. Reno, B. Williams. This work is a collaboration between our group at UCLA and Sandia National Labs CINT, with the goal of developing actively mode-locked THz QC-VECSELs with adjustable cavity lengths. Congratulations Yu!
