In 2001, Professor Wieman and his colleagues, Drs. Eric Allin Cornell and Wolfgang Ketterle, received the Nobel Prize in Physics for their pioneering research on the Bose-Einstein condensate. Dr. Wieman has also served as Associate Director for Science in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy.
