No, that's not the King of Sweden standing beside 2012 Nobel Laureate Dave Wineland (right) of NIST, Boulder. Wineland did receive his Nobel Prize from the King in Stockholm on December 10, but, as shown in the photo, on November 29 he was one of the guests of honor at a reception for American Nobel Laureates held at Blair House, across the street from the White House, sponsored by the Department of State Office of Protocol. Standing next to Wineland is NIST Director Patrick Gallagher.
