Lene Hau’s Nano-Lecture

Lene Hau’s Nano-Lecture about SLOW LIGHT is now posted. Over the next week or two, we will also post the other Nano-Lectures that were presented at the 2003 Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony.

What is a Nano-Lecture? For those unfamiliar with this tiny concept, here’s the official description:

Each Nano-Lecture was on an assigned topic. The lecturer was asked to explain that topic twice:
? FIRST, a complete technical description in TWENTY-FOUR (24) SECONDS;
? and THEN a clear summary that anyone can understand, in SEVEN (7) WORDS.
