2017 - Presidential Rank Award---Benz

Dr. Benz is recognized for his work in developing, improving and disseminating the quantum voltage standards that underpin all precision voltage measurements in the U.S. and in much of the world. Measurements based directly on Benz's innovations are critical to our nation's infrastructure, help ensure fair commercial trade in electric power globally, make possible the ultra-high accuracy measurements required by today's modern electronics and microelectronics industries, and enhance the nation's economic competitiveness.
