2022 Gold Medal Award

2022 Gold Medal Awardees

AWARD CITATION

The team is recognized for their pioneering research in Rydberg atom technology and applications, leveraging fundamental laws of quantum mechanics to measure electromagnetic signals on an absolute scale. Electromagnetic signals carry the information in our computers, our cell phones, and across the internet. The team demonstrated several firsts with their innovative technology – the first directly SI-traceable electric field sensor; the first atom-based receiver for communication signals; and the first quantum atom-based antenna.
