Stwalley recognized nationally
May 11, 1998
William C. Stwalley, professor and head of the physics department, recently received the Optical Society of America's William F. Meggers Award for his outstanding work in spectroscopy.
The award was given in recognition of Stwalley's work with multiple resonance laser spectroscopy and photoassociative spectroscopy of ultracold atoms. The award also recognizes his leadership and teaching in the field of laser science.
"Dr. Stwalley is one of the University's truly outstanding researchers," said Ross MacKinnon, dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Science. "Though he's only been here five years, he has had a tremendous impact on the quality of scientific inquiry on campus."
The award, which includes $1,500, a medal and a certificate, will be presented at OSA's annual meeting on October 5, 1998, in Baltimore, Md.
