The following three awards of the European Frequency and Time Forum were presented at IFCS-EFTF 2015 to recipients selected by the Executive Committee of the EFTF: The European Frequency and Time Award recognises outstanding contributions in all fields covered by the EFTF.
European Frequency and Time Award 2015
Giorgio Santarelli, Laboratoire Photonique, Numérique et Nanosciences Institut d’Optique Graduate School-CNRS-Université de Bordeaux, France
“For his outstanding contributions to the development of ultra-low phase noise methods and systems for microwave and optical atomic clocks, of fiber-based optical frequency combs and of optical fiber links”
The EFTF Young Scientist Award is conferred in recognition of a personal contribution that has demonstrated a high degree of initiative and creativity and led to already established or easily foreseeable outstanding advances in the field of time and frequency metrology. The award honours a person under the age of 40 at the date of the opening session of the EFTF conference.
EFTF Young Scientist Award 2015
Franklyn J. Quinlan, NIST, Boulder, USA
“For seminal contributions to the understanding of fundamental noise processes in the photo detection of short optical pulses and the realization of very pure microwave signals using femtosecond frequency combs”
The Marcel Ecabert Award of the EFTF is a lifetime award and honours the excellent achievements of the recipient or an institution 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.
Marcel Ecabert Award 2015
Bernd Neubig, AXTAL GmbH, Lobbach, Germany
“For almost 40 years of scientific advances in piezoelectric frequency control devices, his business acumen and his efforts in the international standardization of piezoelectric devices”
The awards are sponsored by the Société Française des Microtechniques et de Chronométrie.
