Congress Special Events

Plenary Session
Friday, 5 December
Steven Chu is the William R. Kenan, Jr., Professor of Humanities and Sciences and Professor of Physics and Molecular & Cellular Physiology at Stanford University.  His research program encompasses atomic physics, quantum electronics, energy and energy economics, and biophysics and biomedicine that tests fundamental theories in physics, the development of methods to laser cool and trap atoms, atom interferometry, and the study of polymers and biological systems at the single molecule level.  For his work developing the theory of laser cooling of atoms, he was co-recipient the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1997.  From January 2009 until April 2013, Dr. Chu served as the 12th U.S. Secretary of Energy, being the first scientist to hold a cabinet position.  For more information on the Plenary speaker see the plenary page
