Event description

Description

Join us for lunch with a Nobel Physics Laureate.

The ARC Centre for Future Low-Energy Electronics Technologies (FLEET) will be hosting Nobel prize winning physicist, Professor Wolfgang Ketterle, who will be visiting from MIT. FLEET invites secondary school students interested in physics and their teachers to join Professor Ketterle at Monash University, Clayton, for lunch. Professor Ketterle will present to students, who will then have the opportunity to talk to him in small groups.

Prof Ketterle won the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physics (with Eric Cornell and Carl Wieman) for discovering the fascinating physics of Bose-Einstein condensates, the so-called “5th state of matter”. In such states, atoms are cooled to temperatures a billion times colder than outer space (right here in the laboratories at Monash University), and matter behaves as a wave, “marching in quantum lockstep”.

This is a free event, however schools are limited to six students in Years 9, 10 and/or 11 who are interested, or enrolled, in physics. Teacher can book up to seven tickets (six students plus themselves). Following booking of tickets, teachers will be emailed a link to complete the details of students attending and any dietary requirements.

Visitors & parking at Monash Clayton A map of the Clayton campus can be found online. There are designated visitors car parks in the “N1” building (marked in blue, towards top left of the map) just west of the New Horizons Building. Visitor spaces are available on the ground floor (limited spaces) and top floor (level six, lots of spaces). Tickets are $10/day or $2/hour, available from machines. More parking information.

FLEET is pleased to present Prof Ketterle in cooperation with the Australian Institute of Physics.AIP logo
