NPL Scientist wins the EFTF Young Scientist Award 2022

Marco Schioppo receives the EFTF Young Scientist Award 2022 from the Executive Committee of the European Frequency and Time Forum (EFTF)

Marco has been awarded for his contributions to ultrastable lasers and measurement precision in optical frequency metrology, which have impacted on the development and characterisation of optical atomic clocks.

The EFTF Young Scientist Award is conferred by the Executive Committee of the European Frequency and Time Forum (EFTF) in recognition of “a personal contribution that 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 recognises Marco’s recent work, published in Nature Communications, that set a new record for comparison of distant ultrastable lasers through an optical fibre network, as well as earlier work, published in Nature Photonics, on an ultrastable laser at NIST that enabled a world-first demonstration of zero-dead-time operation of a pair of lattice clocks.

On receiving the award, Marco Schioppo said: “It is an honour to contribute to our international community working on time and frequency metrology and to see our work having positive impact on our broad society”.
