Munich, Germany -- As a proud sponsor of the APS Norman F. Ramsey Prize, TOPTICA would like to congratulate the 2021 recipient Prof. Dmitry Budker, Professor of Physics, Johannes Gutenberg University and Section Leader, Helmholtz Institute Mainz, and Professor of Graduate School, University of California at Berkeley “for groundbreaking work in the precision spectroscopy of atoms and molecules”.
Established in 2016 by The American Physical Society (APS), the Norman F. Ramsey Prize recognizes outstanding accomplishment in AMO Physics (Atomic, Molecular and Optical) and Precision Tests of Fundamental Laws and Symmetries – both of which were fields that Ramsey himself excelled in.
The prize is awarded with 10,000 US dollars and has been presented annually since 2017. Budker is honored for "his seminal work studying complex atoms, testing fundamental symmetries of nature, measuring electromagnetic fields, searching for exotic interactions, probing the nature of dark matter, and measuring nuclear magnetic resonance in ultralow fields."
TOPTICA Photonics is pleased to join in part with close family, friends and other industry partners as a main supporter of this award to honor Ramsey’s memory and his contributions to both the Precision Measurements and AMO communities.
