2013 Nobel Prize in Physics Awarded to François Englert and Peter W. Higgs
The 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded jointly to François Englert and Peter W. Higgs “for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.”
Congratulations Drs. Englert and Higgs!
Ana Maria Rey Wins MacArthur Fellowship for Cold Atom Theory Work
JILA Fellow Dr. Ana Maria Rey has been awarded a 2013 MacArthur Fellowship, also known as a “Genius Grant.” Dr. Rey has been developing the theory of cold atom physics including the theoretical underpinnings of ultra-cold optical lattices and the large-scale entanglement between atoms.
We are proud that the MacArthur Foundation has recognized a member of the Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics Community for this prestigious award.
Congratulations Dr. Rey!
Each year, the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation identifies 20 to 30 exceptionally creative individuals with the potential for important work and provides them with financial support, freeing them to pursue their most innovative ideas.
