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 a
dvisory board. He will be missed by us and the AMO physics community.
