Commissioned by Monash University to paint J.L. Les Williams (January 18, 1915 – June 4, 1994)

A portrait of J. L. (Les) William was commissioned by Monash University’s School of Physics. The portrait was painted by the Adelaide artist Ms Avril Thomas. The J. L. William Bequest to the School of Physics specifically mentions “quantum measurements”, and the portrait will be displayed in the Monash University’s New Horizons Centre; a multi-disciplinary building which encompasses energy research, low-dimensional and nano-material physics research, atom optics, laser trapping and cooling, and Bose-Einstein condensates.
