Manne Siegbahn Memorial Lecture

The Manne Siegbahn Memorial Lecture presents recent breakthroughs and developments in experimental physics. The lecture series was instituted in 1993 to the memory of Manne Siegbahn, and it is supported by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences through its Nobel Institute for Physics.

When the Manne Siegbahn Laboratory was integrated into the Department of Physics at Stockholm University in 2011, the task of organising the Manne Siegbahn Memorial Lecture was taken over by the AlbaNova University Center.
