Phillips, William Daniel (1948-) is an American physicist who shared the 1997 Nobel Prize in physics with American Steven Chu and French physicist Claude Cohen-Tannoudji. Phillips works in the field of laser cooling of atoms�using laser beams to slow down the random movements of atoms in a gas until they are nearly stationary, so that they can be more closely studied.
