Dr. Elite Tiesinga

Physicist, National Institute of Standards and Technology

Dr. Eite Tiesinga was a recipient of the Arthur S. Flemming Award for public service in the field of basic science.  Dr. Tiesinga works at NIST on ultra-cold atoms.   By manipulating these atoms, scientists can carefully tune the quantum gases that might one day power quantum computers.  Dr. Tiesinga is frequently asked by researchers around the world to consult on their measurements and findings, and his work on ultra-cold atoms has helped put the United States ahead in the race to achieve successful quantum computing.
