Physics press conferences at next week's American Physical Society March Meeting
Date:3/17/2010

nto account challenges such as lack of electricity, refrigeration, doctors, and health care facilities of any type. Sessions Q10 and T10 will focus on breakthroughs that may very well hold solutions to these problems.

SPEAKERS: Peter Kiesel of the Palo Alto Research Center will discuss a new hand-held prototype device for low-cost testing of disease progression in HIV/AIDS. John X.J. Zhang, of the University of Texas at Austin will focus on a device that his team has developed to detect rare cancer cells circulating in the bloodstream. Bernhard Weigl of PATH in Seattle will discuss his team's kits for performing nucleic acid tests in low-resource settings. Purdue professor Muhammad Ashraful Alam will discus the general field of biosensors and how the underlying physics relates to the sensitivity and speed of disease detection.

Wednesday, March 17, 10:00 a.m.

ULTRACOLD QUANTUM CHEMISTRY (Sessions Q27 and T28)

Because some of the energy that fuels chemical reactions comes from the motion of the reactants, you might expect that chemistry slows down as temperature is reduced. At absolute zero, you might suppose that chemistry stops all together. But this is not the case -- as is shown for the first time by experiments at NIST in Boulder, Colorado. Reactions among KRb molecules not only take place but also can be controlled by adjusting the spin states of the molecules beforehand. The researchers believe that this work represents one of the first manifestations of "quantum chemistry."

Speakers: Jun Ye (paper Q27.1) and Deborah Jin (paper T28.3), both of NIST/JILA/University
