Lecture by Professor Wolfgang Ketterle, Professor of Physics, Nobel Laureate in Physics
Director, MIT-Harvard Center for Ultracold Atoms

New forms of matter near absolute zero temperature

Why do physicists freeze matter to extremely low temperatures? Why is it worthwhile to cool to temperatures, which are a billion times lower than those of interstellar space?

In this talk, Professor Ketterle will discuss new forms of matter, which only exist at extremely low temperatures. With the help of laser beams, gases of ultracold atoms can be transformed into metals and insulators, and recently into a supersolid which is gaseous, liquid and solid at the same time.

Professor Ludwig Neyses, Acting president of the University of Luxembourg, will chair the conference.
Professor Ludger Wirtz, Head of the Physics and Materials Science Research Unit will moderate the discussion.

The speech will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
A reception will take place afterwards.
