DAMOP2010 at Houston, Texas

DAMOP2010,, was organized in Hyatt Regency Hotel, Houston, Texas from May 25-29, 2010. There were a lot of interesting presentations - oral and poster both, several exciting activities, including some activities to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the invention of LASER. In fact, the discovery of LASER has drastically changed the science and technology and the world as a whole. The LASER has found its applications in diverse fields. In fact, one can rarely find a field of science and technology where there is no presence/use of a LASER in one form or another. Atomic, molecular and optical physics is one of the major fields which has gotten a tremendous advantage from the discovery of LASER. In fact, the first observation of a BOSE-Einstein Condensate (BEC) became possible in 1995, after about 70 years of its prediction by Einstein, because of the development of the technique of cooling atoms using a laser.
There were thousands of atomic, molecular and optical physicists, including several Nobel Laureates in the fields.
I also presented by current research in the meeting
