2011 Distinguished Alumnus: Professor Lene Vestergaard Hau, Harvard University

In a number of much talked-about experiments, Lene Vestergaard Hau has succeeded in slowing down and later even stopping light particles altogether. Her research career has, however, not been characterised by slowness; in fact, since being awarded her PhD degree in solid-state physics from Aarhus University in 1991, it has been full steam ahead.
