It is with great sadness that we
announce that our colleague and a true
friend of ITAMP,
Prof. Raymond Flannery (Ga. Tech), passed
away after a long battle with cancer on
Thursday, May 2, 2013. He was associated
with ITAMP from the very beginning and
served on its advisory board. He will be
missed by us and the AMO physics community.
