Wolfgang Ketterle Wins 2001 Nobel Prize for Physics

Fundamental Physics principal investigator Wolfgang Ketterle of MIT has been named one of three recipients of the 2001 Nobel prize in physics. Along with Eric Cornell and Carl Wieman of JILA and NIST, Ketterle was cited "...for the achievement of Bose-Einstein condensation in dilute gases of alkali atoms, and for early fundamental studies of the properties of the condensates." NASA and JPL join with the physics community in congratulating Wolfgang on this well-deserved award. http://www.nobelprizes.com/
