New Center for Ultracold Atoms Established at PI Institute

Wolfgang Ketterle reports that MIT has established the Center for Ultracold Atoms. This is a new NSF-funded center that will initiate experimental and theoretical work on ultracold atoms at Harvard and MIT (see http://cua.mit.edu/). At the inaugurations, there were presentations by officials from NSF, MIT and Harvard, and the keynote speech was given by W.D. Phillips (Nobel laureate, and also a Fundamental Physics PI) from NIST. The NASA Fundamental Physics work at MIT conducted by Ketterle's group will benefit from the environment of the new center.
