APS Awards Booklet March 14, 2007

Posted by gordonwatts in physics life.

CIMG0933My wife attended the March APS meeting and brought back the awards booklet for me to check out. I think because it has a stunning picture of the ATLAS detector on the front of it. Looking through it I realize how small the world of physics is — I have met many of the people who got prizes. Heck, UW has tried to hire a bunch of them in the past: Lisa Randall (Julius Edgar Lilienfeld Prize), Irfan Siddiqi (George E. Valley, Jr. Prize), and David DeMille (Francis Pipkin Award). Too bad we didn’t manage to land any of them (they went to Harvard, Berkeley, and Yale). I also see that UW Ph.D. student Kathryn Miknaitis got a a thesis award for looking for neutrino oscillations through the earth (as opposed to the neutrinos that come from the sun). There are lots more awards, which you can check out here. Congratulations to everyone!
