Nobel Laureate underscores importance of investment in basic research
Date:5/22/2009

work has yielded many relevant naval applications, in particular precision timekeeping, navigation and quantum information, including unbreakable encryption.

"Dr. Phillips and his colleagues were the first to clearly slow down atomic motion with light, and the first to construct a trap for neutral atoms. Both of these pioneering accomplishments were made possible with support from the Office of Naval Research, which was given at early stages of his scientific career," said Dr. Charles W. Clark, ONR's Atomic and Molecular Physics program manager, who has funded some of Phillips' more recent research.

Since 1946, ONR has funded the world's premier engineers, physicists, mathematicians, oceanographers, meteorologists and thousands of other scientists as they conduct revolutionary research in support of U.S. forces and allies. These investments in discovery and invention (D&I), innovative naval prototypes (INP) and future naval capabilities (FNC) have yielded a myriad of state-of-the-art technologies over the long-term.

"The ability of ONR to be able to support high risk, long term research efforts without requiring external peer review enabled the breakthroughs by Dr. Phillips that created a whole new field of research," noted Dr. Bobby Junker, head of ONR's Command, Control Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) department. In November 1979, Junker was the ONR program officer who initiated funding for Phillips' research on laser cooling and trapping of neutral atoms.
