          Katharine Blodgett Gebbie

          Katharine Blodgett Gebbie (1932-2016) led NIST to its four Nobel Prizes in physics as the former director of NIST’s Physical Measurement Laboratory and Physics Laboratory, which included Bill Phillips, Dave Wineland, Eric Cornell and Jan Hall. In this video, released in early 2016, Gebbie describes her life and work.
