Physicists discover spiral vortex patterns from electron waves
University of Nebraska-Lincoln physicists have made a compelling discovery that graces the Sept. 11 cover of the journal Physical Review Letters. In their new study, physicists Anthony Starace and Jean Marcel Ngoko Djiokap report an unusual pattern of wave interference produced when an electron is ejected, or ionized, from its orbit around a helium atom.

Workshop on "Insights into AMO Physics and Related Fields" in honor of Professor Anthony Starace's 70th birthday
Former students, post-docs, and collaborators of Professor Starace returned to UNL on Saturday, August 22 to deliver talks on hot topics in Atomic, Molecular, Optical & Plasma Physics. All events were held in Jorgensen Hall, and the event welcomed nearly 80 attendees.
Starace received honorary degree from Russian university
Anthony Starace received an honorary D.Sc. degree from Voronezh State University, Russia, in June, 2014, and presented an invited talk. The award was in honor of a 17-year collaboration between Starace and VSU.
