2020 Norman F. Ramsey Prize
"For pioneering explorations of ultrafast strong field physics from the optical to the X-ray regime."
2019 Francis M. Pipkin Award
"For pioneering research on producing ultracold molecules confined in optical lattices and using them for precision spectroscopy, molecular clock techniques, and tests of fundamental physics."
2020 Student Poster Competition
GPMFC will award a "Best Student Poster" award, consisting of a $500 prize, at the APS DAMOP meeting.
The next workshop, "Precision-measurement Searches for New Physics", is a one-day workshop organized by the APS Topical Group on Precision Measurements and Fundamental Constants (GPMFC). It will take place in Portland, Oregon on June 1, 2020 – the day before the DAMOP meeting begins. It will be held at the same venue as the DAMOP meeting.
Previous Workshops: 2019, 2018, 2017, 2015
