Energy, security, superconductivity and more at the largest physics meeting of the year
Date:3/21/2011

sistor constructed from a single molecule. Single molecule transistors are the smallest possible transistors, which may someday help take computers to the limits of computing power while simultaneously reducing their costs. Robert Thorne (W21.00013), of Cornell University, will talk about exposing traces of ancient markings on Mayan, Greek, Roman and other artifacts using a non-destructive technique called X-ray fluorescence (XRF) imaging. The technique allows high resolution imaging of chemical traces left behind by tools and paints invisible to the naked eye.

COUNTERING WMDs WITH PHYSICS

Physicists and other scientists made weapons of mass destruction possible, and they also play leading roles in controlling them and limiting their danger. Two examples of physicists' latter contributions will be presented at this press conference. Physicists can predict the means and risks of the removal of nuclear weapons. Jay Davis (Q5.00004), president of the Hertz Foundation, which provides fellowships to students in the physical, biological and engineering sciences, says physicists can undertake systems analysis to help guide policy and operations: what are the risks, what should inspectors look for, what dangers might be lurking in a new technology or an unexpected development? He will discuss how physicists can enter this challenging field. Regarding biological weapons, Philip Wyatt (Q5.00003) of the Wyatt Technology Corporation in Santa Barbara, Calif., is upbeat. Despite what he says is the expectation that terrorist
