Nobel Prize-winner in Physics (2001), Wolfgang Ketterle signs a black and white publicity photograph of a medal struck for the 100th anniversary of the Nobel Prizes.
Photograph signed: "W. Ketterle". B/w, 8x10 overall, image 4¼-inch diameter (one surface). Photograph of a medal struck for the 100th anniversary of the Nobel Prizes. Wolfgang Ketterle, born in Heidelberg, Germany in 1957, is a German physicist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He was co-recipient of the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physics with Eric A. Cornell and Carl E. Wieman. All three men developed experiments to trap and cool atoms at temperatures close to absolute zero, conditions necessary to create Bose-Einstein condensates (BEC), a new kind of matter with properties not well understood by current physics. BECs had been predicted by Albert Einstein and Satyendra Nath Bose in 1924; Ketterle and his team created one, out of sodium atoms, in 1995, as did Cornell and Wieman in a separate experiment. Cornell and Wieman were the first to create a BEC in a separate experiment, but Ketterle's was made from a larger sample of atoms, which allowed him to conduct additional experiments.Minor surface creases (not evident head on) at lower blank margin. Fine condition.
