Nobel Prize Winning Physicist to
Speak at Marquette
Date: Thursday, Oct. 13, 2005
Time: 7:00 p.m.
Place: Weasler Auditorium
W. Wisconsin Ave.
The Marquette University departments of Physics and Chemistry
will host Nobel Laureate Dr. Eric Cornell as he presents Stone
Cold Science: Bose-Einstein Condensation and the Weird World
of Physics a Millionth of a Degree Above Absolute Zero, at
7:00 p.m. in the Weasler Auditorium at 1506 W. Wisconsin Ave.
on Thursday, Oct. 13, 2005.
Cornell is known for his work with Carl Wieman and Wolfgang
Ketterle examining Bose Einstein Condensation. He
will discuss how they were finally able to prove the theory
Nath Bose and Albert Einstein developed in the
early 1920's which outlines rules governing the behavior
of identical photons or atoms.
The ability of Cornell and his partners to confirm this theory
has opened up the field of quantum mechanics, allowing physicists
to challenge conventional thinking and prove quantum mechanics
on a whole new level. It was this work that earned them the
Nobel Prize for Physics in 2001.
