The Bridge Forum Dialogue a.s.b.l.
and the University of Luxembourg
have the honour of inviting you
on Tuesday 14 November 2017 at 6.00 p.m.
to a conference by
Professor Wolfgang Ketterle
Professor of Physics, Nobel Laureate in Physics
Director, MIT-Harvard Center for Ultracold Atoms
under the title:
‘New forms of matter near absolute zero temperature’
Why do physicists freeze matter to extremely low temperatures?
Why is it worthwhile to cool to temperatures,
which are a billion times lower than those of interstellar space?
In this talk, Professor Ketterle will discuss new forms of matter,
which only exist at extremely low temperatures.
With the help of laser beams, gases of ultracold atoms can be transformed into metals and insulators, and recently into a supersolid which is gaseous, liquid and solid at the same time.
Professor Ludwig Neyses
Member of the Board of The Bridge Forum Dialogue
Acting Rector of the University of Luxembourg
will chair the conference.
Professor Ludger Wirtz
Head of the Physics and Materials Science Research Unit
will moderate the discussion.
The speech will be followed by a question-and-answer session
Venue: University of Luxembourg, Campus Limpertsberg
