Students take a study break at the annual Midnight Breakfast.
Hall Receives Nobel Prize in Sweden
JILA Fellow and Senior Research Associate John Hall traveled to Sweden last month to receive the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physics. Hall is CU-Boulder's fourth Nobel Prize winner. He is also a founding fellow of JILA, established in 1964, and has been affiliated with CU-Boulder's physics department since 1966. Hall's work on the development of the laser has transferred from laboratory curiosity to a fundamental tool of modern science.
