Rydberg Lecture

With the support by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences through its Nobel Institute for Physics, annual Rydberg Lectures are arranged in Lund. The lecture of this year will be given by one of the Nobel Laureates in Physics 2005:

Monday, March 27, at 13.15

LTH Aula (Kårhuset)

Prof. Theodor W. Hänsch

Max-Planck-Institut für Quantenoptik, Garching


Department of Physics, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, München

”A Passion for Precision”

The development of ultra-high precision laser spectroscopy and the optical frequency comb technique will be described. The techniques enable unprecedented precision in the determination of the fundamental constants, even on a level where the question of their constancy can be addressed. Very precise optical clocks become possible, and many new fundamental and practical applications are emerging.

The lecture will be opened by Rector Magnificus

Göran Bexell

Most Welcome !
