Nobel Prize in physics — 1997
This year’s Nobel Prize in physics recognises the spectacular progress during the last decade in the cooling and trapping of atoms by the use of laser beams. The techniques exploit basic physical principles with great ingenuity and have very interesting applications in precision measurement and the study of new phenomena.
