WASHINGTON, Oct. 20 -- Scientists and engineers from around the world will gather on the shores of Lake Ontario in Rochester, N.Y. next week to discuss some of the latest breakthroughs in lasers and optics and their applications to cutting-edge science, the development of new materials, and medicine.

Journalists are invited to Frontiers in Optics (FiO) 2010/Laser Science XXVI -- the 94th annual meeting of the Optical Society (OSA), which is being held together with the annual meeting of the American Physical Society (APS) Division of Laser Science at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center in Rochester, N.Y., from Oct. 24-28. Registration details are at the end of this press release.

Many of the presentations at the meeting focus on the most cutting-edge discoveries in applied optics and fundamental physics. Some highlights, described below, include:

1) A Technique that Shows Colorful Connections in the Brain
2) Looking for Osteoporosis with Scattered Light
3) Spotting Suspicious Moles
4) Better Detection for Diagnostics and Biochemical Defense
5) Real-Time Imaging of Stroke Models
6) Direct Laser Cooling of Molecules
7) Making Better Biosensors with Electron Density Waves
8) The Coldest Chemistry
9) Taking a Closer Look at Plaque
10) Best Yet Test of Lorentz Invariance
11) Optofluidics Leads to Better Sensors

Additional research highlights, including new way to treat skin cancer with LEDs, a novel device for imaging brain activity, and energy consumption trends in communication networks, can be found online in the Frontiers in Optics Media Center. http://www.frontiersinoptics.org/MediaCenter/ConferenceNews/default.aspx
