Beller International Lecture at DAMOP Meeting

The second Beller International Lecture will be given by Serge Haroche in the opening Plenary Session of the DAMOP meeting in Ann Arbor, MI on May 15. The subject of Haroche's talk is "Quantum Measurements and Decoherence Studies with Single Atomic in Cavities." Dr. Haroche is a fellow of the APS and is at the Lab de Physics de l'Ens, Paris, France.

The Beller International Lectureship Fund was endowed by the estate of Esther Hoffman Beller in 1993. Earnings from the fund are used to pay for honaria and stipends for distinguished foreign scientists to speak at APS meetings. It is assumed that, in turn, societies abroad will ask U.S. physicists to lecture at their meetings. The first Beller Lecturer was presented by Joachim Trmper at Unity Day of the April 1994 APS/AAPT Joint meeting.
