Yong-Ki Kim, who joined NIST as a physicist in 1983, died in an automobile accident in September 2006. The Yong-Ki Kim Award for Excellence in Research was established by the family and friends of Yong-Ki to recognize junior scientists working in the areas of atomic structure, spectra, and collisions. The Award was presented at the annual meeting of the Division of Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics of the American Physical Society (DAMOP) in Calgary, Canada in May 2007. The Award Selection Committee consisted of Joseph Reader (Chair), Klaus Bartschat, Charlotte Fischer, Walter Johnson, and Kenneth Taylor. The Award, consisting of $1000 and a plaque, was given to George Noble (York University, Ontario, Canada) for his poster presentation at the DAMOP Meeting, “Isotope Shifts and Fine Structures of 6,7Li D Lines and Determination of Relative Nuclear Charge Radius."
