Piet O. Schmidt

The Head of the QUEST Institute at PTB received the Young Scientist Award at this year‘s EFTF Conference (European Frequency and Time Forum) in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, for his contribution to developing one of the currently most precise atomic clocks in the world.

Osama Terra

This PhD student in PTB Department 4.3 "Quantum Optics and Unit of Length" received the EFTF Student Award in the category "Timekeeping, Time and Frequency Transfer, GNSS and Applications" for his work "Optical frequency dissemination over a German wide-area network using Brillouin amplifiers".

Matthias Müller

This PhD student in PTB Department 7.1 "X-ray Metrology with Synchrotron Radiation" was given the Young Spectrometrist PhD Award at this year's European Conference on X-ray Spectrometry (EXRS) in Figueira da Foz (Portugal). The European X-ray Spectrometry Association (EXSA) thus honoured Müller's PhD thesis, which is on novel methodologies for quantitative wavelengthdispersive X-ray fluorescence analysis in the soft X-ray range at the Berlin electron storage ring Bessy II.
