2022 Bronze Medal Award

Fred Meisenkothen Bronze award


Dr. Meisenkothen is honored for the development of standards-based techniques for atom probe tomography. Application of these techniques enables nanometer-scale mass spectrometry and imaging to be performed with previously unattainable levels of quantitative accuracy and reproducibility.  His efforts are bringing these improved capabilities to practitioners of this technique in fields such as semiconductor metrology, geology, and isotopic analysis.
