Honours students Sam Francis and Emmanuel Malikides have been awarded two out of the five VSSEC-NASA Space Prize categories for 2012.

Sam received the Space Prize in Engineering for his Honours thesis Weak-light phase locking, which explores new ways of phase-locking to very low power optical signals.

Emmanuel was awarded the Space Prize in Astro-Physics for his Honours thesis 2D demonstration of a scalable optical phased array, which follows the design and successful demonstration of a prototype 2D optical phased array.

Both Sam and Emmanuel's theses have been recognised as outstanding contributions to the GRACE Follow-On mission project at the ANU.
