Prof. Mark G. Raizen

Maxwell, Einstein, and Their Impossibilities

In 1871, James Clerk Maxwell proposed a thought experiment, and in 1907, Albert Einstein made a prediction. Both men concluded that the experimental realizations would be impossible. In this talk Prof. Raizen will describe his recent work that challenged this historical conclusion and has enabled new methods for controlling matter with light. Raizen is the Sid W. Richardson Foundation Regents Chair Professor at The University of Texas at Austin.
