IEEE Rayleigh Award for Dr. Kessler of Sonoscan

On September 21st in Rome, Sonoscan president Dr. Lawrence W. Kessler received the prestigious Rayleigh Award presented by the Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics, and Frequency Control (UFFC) Society of the IEEE.

Each year a recipient is selected on the basis of achievements in research, education, publications, and technical innovations.  Since he founded Sonoscan in 1974, Dr. Kessler has been a conspicuous leader in each of these areas.  As the chief technology officer of Sonoscan, he has been responsible for many of the numerous patents that Sonoscan has received over the years.

He has also spearheaded the continuous flow of technical innovations that have grown the utility and versatility of acoustic micro imaging systems into the industry that we have today.  In 1984 Sonoscan introduced the reflection-mode C-SAM (C-Mode Scanning Acoustic Microscope) system, which was the precursor of all modern acoustic microscope systems.
