(With apologies to Shakespeare). 2013 will be the 30th anniversary of my finishing my PhD: “Atomic laser spectroscopy in the UV and Visible”. I still have vivid memories of generating atomic spectra that resolved features of atomic structure previously unseen - the excitement in the wee small hours in the lab of knowing something no other person in the world knew nor had known before.
