  • Toptica Presents Research Awards

Photonics Spectra
Dec 2011
Dr. Ian Spielman and professor Gora Shlyapnikov were honored for their contributions to the field of Bose-Einstein Condensation by Toptica Photonics AG of Martinsried, Germany, during the Bose-Einstein Conference in Sant Feliu, Spain, in September. The awards honor “outstanding research in experimental and/or theoretical physics of quantum degenerate atomic gases.” Shlyapnikov’s award was for his contributions to the development of the many-body theory of trapped quantum gases of bosonic and fermionic atoms and molecules. He is the director of research at Laboratoire de Physique Théorique et Modèles Statistiques in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and a part-time professor of physics at the University of Amsterdam. Spielman was honored for his work on the first experimental realization of synthetic magnetic fields and spin-orbit couplings in atomic Bose-Einstein condensates. He is a researcher at the National Institute of Standards and Technology and a fellow of the Joint Quantum Institute.
