Controlling the Quantum World

This new report identifies research questions that could be addressed by atomic, molecular, and optical science, a scientific field that could help us find new sources of energy, improve health care, and defend against terrorism. The report also looks at recent accomplishments in this discipline and identifies future work force and educational needs.

This briefing was for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on July 24, 2006 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
