Largest physics meeting of the year: March 20-25, 2011, Dallas, Texas
Date:2/9/2011

The March Meeting of the American Physical Society (APS) the largest physics meeting of the year - will take place from March 20 to 25 at the Dallas Convention Center. Approximately 7000 papers will be delivered in the course of the meeting. Journalists are invited to attend the meeting free of charge.

Traditionally the March APS meeting has been a major venue for presenting the scientific principles and techniques behind many of the high-tech devices of today and tomorrow. The large topic areas at the meeting are condensed matter physics, computer physics, biological physics, chemical physics, polymers, and fluids. Specific hot topic areas include graphene, topological insulators--materials that are insulators on the inside but exceptional conductors on the outside--quantum computing, smart materials, bio-engineering, energy efficiency, spintronics, microfluidics, and ultracold atoms.

Not all the presentations at the meeting are highly technical. Session H8 features talks on the physics of rodeo, singing Tesla coils, and the science behind barbecue. Monday, March 21 at 7:45 pm, Vincent Crespi will talk about the attempt to broaden public understanding and appreciation of science, especially nanoscience, through exhibits at museums.

MEETING HIGHLIGHTS

BEAM ME BACKWARDS, SCOTTY

Rather than send airplanes into the upper atmosphere to detect pollutants or biological weapons, researchers at Texas A&M University, with collaborators from Princeton University and the University of Arizona, have developed a backwards-emitting laser-like beam that could be developed to identify gases and particles in the sky. To create the backwards-emitting beam, the team first shoots laser pulses of different speeds to excite air molecules. The two pulses join to generate a new laser-like pulse, called a backwards-emitting beam, that travels back towards the source. This beam could potentially be exploited for new types of r
