2020 Arthur S. Flemming Award - Ian Coddington

Ian Coddington

Ian Coddington of the Time and Frequency Division at NIST’s Physical Measurement Laboratory was honored for groundbreaking progress in the development of frequency comb technology for a wide range of applications. From the Flemming award citation:

“Dr. Coddington helped to develop a new laser technique, dual-comb spectroscopy, and then transformed it from a laboratory experiment into a robust and reliable technology. He demonstrated dual-comb technology for atmospheric gas sensing, precision laser ranging and many other applications. He and his collaborators detected costly and dangerous methane leaks with extraordinary sensitivity.”
