JPL Displays Research in Laser Cooled Atomic Physics at Optical Society Meeting

Last week in Long Beach JPL's Outreach team presented displays describing research topics using lasers to the 17th Interdisciplinary Laser Science Conference Sponsored by the American Physical Society's Division of Laser Science. The meeting included special sessions on laser-cooled atomic clocks, and on gravity wave detection experiments LIGO and LISA, both having JPL involvement. So the JPL display included large posters from LISA and LIGO, plus displays describing the overall microgravity research program of the Physical Sciences Research Division of Code U. Lute Maleki's team prepared three posters showing the Laser Cooled Atomic Physics activities of his team at JPL, plus the experiments being supported in that subdiscipline of the Fundamental Physics research program.
