Temple University-Lecture Nov 1, 2018 
Provost Lecture celebrating CST’s 20th anniversary with William Daniel Phillips, PhD, Time, Einstein and the coolest stuff in the universe 

Thursday, November 1, 2018 
2 p.m. lecture | 3:30 p.m. reception 


Temple University Main Campus 
SERC 110 A&B 

This will be a lively, multimedia presentation, including exciting experimental demonstrations and down-to-earth explanations about some of today’s hottest (and coolest) science. Join us after the lecture for a light reception. 

Lecture abstract: At the beginning of the 20th century, Einstein changed the way we think about time. Now, early in the 21st century, the measurement of time is being revolutionized by the ability to cool a gas of atoms to temperatures millions of times lower than any naturally occurring temperature in the universe. Atomic clocks, the best timekeepers ever made, are one of the scientific and technological wonders of modern life. Such super-accurate clocks are essential to industry, commerce and science; they are the heart of the Global Positioning System (GPS), which guides cars, airplanes and hikers to their destinations. Today, the best primary atomic clocks use ultracold atoms, achieve accuracies of about one second in 300 million years and are getting better all the time, while a new generation of atomic clocks is leading us to redefine what we mean by time. Super-cold atoms, with temperatures that can reach below a billionth of a degree above absolute zero, use, and allow tests of, some of Einstein’s strangest predictions.

 Jefferson Medical Camps - Applications open February 15. Links below will take you to information pages.


Last week I attended Camp Cardiac, which is a medical camp at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia. I learned so many useful things at Camp Cardiac that will prepare me for a career in the medical profession. First of all, I became CPR certified. We learned how to do stitches, take blood pressure, look at EKGs, and dissected a pig’s heart. Many doctors came in through the week to teach us about different diseases within the cardiovascular system. Also, one day we had the opportunity to talk to med students and ask questions about the medical field and how we should prepare ourselves. I would recommend Camp Cardiac to anyone who is interested in learning more about the field of medicine. They also have Camp Neuro which is centered around learning about the brain. I would like to attend that one next year!
