Nobel Prize winner Phillips comes to USF
Using new laser techniques, scientists can cool a matter to the coldest known temperature, less than a millionth of a degree above absolute zero. Tonight, William Phillips, whose laser cooling and trapping research made him co-winner of the 1997 Nobel Prize in physics along with Stevena Chu and Claude Cohen-Tannoudji, will present "Almost Absolute Zero: The Story of Laser Cooling and Trapping" at the Phyllis P. Marshall Center Ballroom at 7 p.m. "Dr. Phillips' group is working on using this for nanolithography, which would have direct application in miniaturizing electronic circuits," Mukherjee said.
