IEEE UFFC Rayleigh Award

Rayleigh Award


The Rayleigh Award represents the highest honor for achievement within the UFFC Society in
the field of Ultrasonics. The achievement may be in technical innovations, research, education,
publications and related professional endeavors. Typically, the recipient will have demonstrated
these accomplishments over a sustained period of time.
