Nobel Laureate to speak at SUNY Geneseo

Wolfgang Ketterle, the 2001 Nobel Laureate in physics, is slated to deliver a lecture this month at the SUNY College at Geneseo, officials said Friday.

His address, “The Coolest Use of Light—How to Make the Coldest Matter in the Universe,” takes place Jan. 27.

 “Dr. Ketterle is one of the world’s leading scientists, and he is a very enthusiastic and energetic speaker,” said Charles Freeman, professor and chairman of the department of physics and astronomy, in a statement. “Our students are buzzing with excitement to have the opportunity to meet a Nobel Laureate in person.”

Ketterle, a professor of physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is coming to SUNY Geneseo to deliver a lecture in physics named in honor of the late Robert Sells, who founded the physics department.

The lecture is free and open to the public.
