PhD candidate Emma Ellingwood has won the prize for Best Presentation in Experimental Physics at the 59th Winter Nuclear & Particle Physics Conference held online Feb 15-18 2022 (wnppc.triumf.ca/2022). 

The work Emma presented on the fluorescence of optical materials at temperatures down to 4 K will inform the design of particle detectors looking for dark matter and neutrinos, and will help understand backgrounds in such experiments. 

Details are available in two publications she is involved in:

• Benmansour et al 2021 JINST 16 P12029 arxiv.org/abs/2110.08103
• Ellingwood et al 2022 submitted to Nucl. Instr. Meth. arxiv.org/abs/2112.11581

Emma works in P. Di Stefano's research group.
