|Ultrafast lasers and Archimedes - Scientists & Engineers on Sofas (and other furnishings)||
When it comes to ultrafast lasers, Margaret Murnane’s name is one of the best known for her work in this field of science. Since 1999, she has been a professor at the University of Colorado’s NSF-funded JILA Physics Frontier Center, where she and her husband Henry Kapteyn pioneer research in ultrafast x-ray science. Additionally, the two also own a small laser company. Margaret is credited with building one of the fastest lasers ever, operating in matters of merely femtoseconds. After a lecture at the National Science Foundation on ultra-fast lasers and their applications for nano- and materials research, Ivy Kupec from the NSF sat down with this well-published scientist who originates from County Limerick, Ireland to talk further about these uber speedy lasers, science and even Archimedes.
|6th Annual 2014 Governor’s Award for High-Impact Research winner, Dana Anderson||
JILA Fellow Dana Anderson was one of six awardees of the 2014 Governor’s Award for High-Impact Research. The prestigious award & celebration:
|NIST Unscripted: Eric Cornell||
Eric Cornell, NIST Fellow and Nobel Laureate tells the exciting story of how he and colleague Carl Weiman made the first-ever observation of a new state of matter, the Bose-Einstein condensate, in 1995. The breakthrough led to the duo, along with MIT physicist Wolfgang Ketterle, receiving the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physics.
|NOVA: Making Stuff Colder (PBS)||
On this PBS edition of the program NOVA, Making Stuff Colder, JILA Fellow and Nobel Laureate Eric Cornell talks with host David Pogue about ultracold science. Appearing in the video at about 32:30 and throughout in audio commentary, Eric helps the audience understand the value to scientific discovery of working at near-zero Kelvin temperatures.http://video.kpbs.org/video/2365109000/
|Atomic Physicist Ana Maria Rey, 2013 MacArthur Fellow||
Atomic Physicist Ana Maria Rey was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2013. The Fellowship is a $625,000, no-strings-attached grant for individuals who have shown exceptional creativity in their work and the promise to do more. Learn more at http://www.macfound.org/fellows.
|Ultracold Atoms and Molecules - Deborah Jin (APS Physics)||
Dr. Deborah Jin presents at the APS April Meeting 2013 on ultracold gases, interactions, and recent work on ultracold molecules.
|Deborah S. Jin, 2013 L'Oréal-UNESCO Awards Laureate for North America||
Professor Deborah Jin and her team invented an ingenious method of cooling molecules down to near absolute zero, the lowest possible temperature -- which has the effect of slowing them down. In fact, they slow down enough for researchers to actually see what goes on during chemical reactions. The study of ultra-cold molecules could lead to new precision-measurement tools, new methods for quantum computing and help us better understand materials that are essential to technology.

|NIST/JILA Physicist James Thompson Superradiant Laser||
Physicists at JILA have demonstrated a novel "superradiant" laser design with the potential to be 100 to 1,000 times more stable than the best conventional visible lasers. This type of laser could boost the performance of the most advanced atomic clocks and related technologies, such as communications and navigation systems as well as space-based astronomical instruments.

John Bohn (JILA), during FANO Memorial Symposium, "Resonances and Reflections: Profiles of Ugo Fano's Physics and Its Influences", held July 24, 2002 at The Institute for Theoretical, Atomic and Molecular and Optical Physics, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Cambridge, Massachusetts.
|John Hall Interview for the 2010 (Colorado) Governor's Award for High Impact Research||
Dr. John Hall shares some of his thoughts and experiences developing the optical frequency comb, the discovery for which he shared the 2005 Nobel Prize. The occasion was the 2010 (Colorado) Governor's Award for High Impact Research, sponsored by CO-LABS.
|Interview with John Hall on laser measurement||
The winner of the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physics reflects on a career spent with a fascination for lasers and science. John L. Hall is a fellow and senior research associate at JILA, a joint institute of the University of Colorado at Boulder and the National Institute of Standards and Technology. He was awarded the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physics.
Hall is known as a pre-eminent laser experimentalist, concentrating on improving the precision and accuracy with which lasers can produce a specific, sharp frequency or color of light, and the stability to hold that frequency. His work has been essential to precision spectroscopy for physical and chemical analysis, new tests and measurements of fundamental physical laws and constants, time and length, metrology and fiber-optic communications.
|Margaret Murnane on ultrashort-pulse lasers||
Margaret Murnane is a Fellow of JILA and a Professor in the Department of Physics and of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Colorado. She received her B.S and M.S. degrees from University College Cork, Ireland, and her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1989. She joined the faculty at Washington State University in 1990, moved to the University of Michigan in 1996, and to Colorado in 1999. Murnane and her group use coherent beams of laser and x-ray light to capture the fastest dynamics in molecules and materials at the nanoscale.
With her research partner and husband Henry Kapteyn, she has made important contributions to the development of coherent x-ray sources and helped establish the foundations of attosecond science.
