John Prestage, project scientist in the Quantum Sciences and Technology Group, has been honored for his research by a society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.

The Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control Society named Prestage to receive the 2009 Rabi Award, which recognizes outstanding contributions related to the fields of atomic and molecular frequency standards, and time transfer and dissemination.

The award credited Prestage “for seminal work on the time variation of fundamental constants and outstanding contributions to trapped ion clocks.” He received the honor at the Joint International Frequency Control Symposium and the European Frequency and Time Forum, held in April in Besançon, France.
