UCF Physics: Nobel Laureate Dr. David M. Lee's Talk on Nov 4, 2010

Nobel Laureate Dr. David M. Lee from Texas A&M University will present a

p.m. in Classroom Bldg 1, Room 121.

About David M. Lee: He graduated from Harvard University in 1952. He
obtained a Masters degree from the University of Connecticut. In 1955
Lee entered the Ph.D. program at Yale University where he worked under
Henry A. Fairbank in the low-temperature physics group, doing
experimental research on liquid3He . After graduating from Yale in
1959, Lee took a job at Cornell University, where he was responsible for
setting up the new Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics.
Together with Robert C. Richardson and their graduate student at
Cornell, Doug Osheroff, David M. Lee was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1996
for the discovery of superfluidity in 3He, and the identification of its
phase diagram.
