Carl Wieman (physics)
Stanford University

Carl Wieman was raised in rural Oregon, pursuing interests that might have led him into a career as a writer or a professional chess player rather than a scientist. But as an undergraduate at MIT, he discovered his life-long love of building things, answering real questions, and solving real problems in the laboratory.

Dr. Wieman was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 1995.
