March 31, 2000 -- David Wineland, a physicist with the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colo., will present the 30th annual Llewellyn G. Hoxton Lecture, a free public event, at the University of Virginia on April 10 at 7:30 p.m. in the Physics Building. A reception will follow.

Wineland's talk is titled "Quantum Computing and Other Applications of Spooky Quantum Physics."

Wineland has won many awards for his work in quantum optics, including the Department of Commerce Gold Medal, the 1989 Samuel Wesley Stratton Award, the 1990 Davisson-Germer Prize of the American Physical Society, the 1990 William F. Meggers Award of the Optical Society of America, and membership in the National Academy of Sciences.

Llewellyn G. Hoxton, for whom the annual lectures are named, was a U.Va. physics professor and head of the Department of Physics from 1907 to 1948. The Hoxton Lectures were created to bring the viewpoints and ideas of prominent physicists to students and the public.
