On the morning of April 28, Professor Theodor W. Hansch as the winner of the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physics, was invited by Ao Xiang Celebrity Forum of NPU to make a lecture named “Adventures in Laser Spectroscopy” in the International Conference Center on You Yi Campus for all the teachers and students.
Professor Theodor W. Hansch was born in Heidelberg, German in 1941. For his contributions to optical comb spectrum technology in laser precision spectroscopy, he won the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physics, together with another physicist John L. Hall.
In the lecture, he introduced the latest development of laser spectroscopy study and explained the basic knowledge on optical frequency comb as the core of laser spectrum technology in simple terms. He also demonstrated high-definition picture, accurate clock and dark matter research as the examples of the frontier technological applications in laser spectroscopy. On sharing his experience in science research, he emphasized that curiosity is the most important power for researchers to make continuous developments in the path of science research.
