Awards

EFTF Award

The award, which is open to anyone working in the fields traditionally associated with the European Frequency and Time Forum (EFTF), recognizes exceptional contributions in all fields covered by the EFTF either for fundamental advances or important applications. The significance of contributions includes the degree of initiative and creativity, the quality of work, the degree of success obtained as well as the worldwide scientific impact on the Time and Frequency Community. This award is sponsored by the Société Française des Microtechniques et de Chronométrie. The recipients are selected by the Executive Committee of the EFTF.

2011 EFTF Award: 

Dr. James C. Bergquist, NIST Time and Frequency Division

Citation: “For seminal contributions to high-resolution laser spectroscopy and frequency standards for over 30 years.”

EFTF Young Scientist Award:

The EFTF Young Scientist Award is conferred in recognition of a personal contribution that demonstrated a high degree of initiative and creativity and lead to already established or easily foreseeable outstanding advances in the field of time and frequency metrology. A prerequisite is that the work to be taken under consideration has been published in the Proceedings of the European Frequency and Time Forum or the IEEE Frequency Control Symposium. The award honors a person under the age of 40 at the date of the opening session of the 2011 EFTF-IFCS joint conference. The goal is to encourage scientific endeavor and competition and to help young scientists along their career paths. This award is sponsored by the Société Française des Microtechniques et de Chronométrie. The recipients are selected by the Executive Committee of the EFTF.

2011 EFTF Young Scientist Award:

Dr. Tobias Kippenberg, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics

Citation: “For contributions to optical frequency metrology by the demonstration of monolithic micro resonator frequency comb generators.”

EFTF Marcel Ecabert Award:

The Marcel Ecabert Award of the European Frequency and Time Forum (EFTF) is a lifetime award and honors the excellent achievements of the recipient in the field of time and frequency. It is named after the late Marcel Ecabert, founding member of the EFTF and member of its Executive Committee.

2011 EFTF Marcel Ecabert Award:

Dr. Giovanni Busca, KYTIME

Citation:  “In recognition of a career successfully devoted to the development of atomic frequency standards, and for his major contributions to the establishment of an industrial infrastructure for ground and space clocks at European level.”

IFCS W.G. Cady Award

This award recognizes outstanding contributions related to the fields of crystal resonators, frequency control, frequency synthesis, noise measurement and sensor devices.

2011 IFCS W.G. Cady Award:

Prof. Georgy D. Mansfeld, Russian Academy of Sciences

Citation: “For pioneering research in physical acoustoelectronics and acoustics, including acoustic resonance spectroscopy, attenuation mechanisms, piezoelectric properties of thin layers and films, and new acoustic materials.”

IFCS C.B. Sawyer Memorial Award

This award recognizes outstanding contributions in the development, production or characterization of piezoelectric materials of interest to the Symposium Technical Program Committee, or to recognize entrepreneurship or leadership within profit or non profit organizations in the frequency control community (including all parts of the community).

2011 IFCS C.B. Sawyer Memorial Award:

Prof. Achim Wixforth, University of Augsburg

Citation:  “For the development and successful commercialization of surface acoustic wave driven microfluidic systems.”

IFCS I.I. Rabi Award

This award recognizes outstanding contributions related to the fields of atomic and molecular frequency standards, time scale realization, and time comparison and dissemination.

2011 IFCS I.I. Rabi Award:

Dr. Fritz Riehle, Physikalisch-Technische Budesanstalt (PTB)

Citation: “For outstanding contributions to the field of atomic frequency standards, including pioneering research and development of optical frequency standards and their measurement.”
