AIP Introduces <i>The Industrial Physicist</i>

The premier issue of The Industrial Physicist, an attractive and readable new magazine published by the American Institute of Physics (AIP), was sent to all subscribers of Physics Today in July, free of charge, as part of an introductory offer. The new publication is intended to be useful to physicists working in industry.

The first issue included an article on the newly established APS Forum on Industrial and Applied Physics (FIAP), an article on the next generation of automobiles under the auspices of the U.S. Council for Automotive Research, and an article on the use of dimensional analysis to simulate large scale processes that would not be possible to test in the laboratory, such as meteoroid impacts on space craft.

If you did not already receive a copy of The Industrial Physicist, you can contact the editor, Ken McNaughton, at One Physics Ellipse, College Park, MD 20740-3843; phone: (301) 209-3051; FAX: (301) 209-0842; email: kjm@aip.org. There is a reply-paid subscription card in the magazine to fill out and mail. If you qualify as a physicist who works in industry or industry-funded research, or as a physicist planning a career in industry, you will qualify for a free subscription. Others will be invited to subscribe at reasonable rates.

APS encourages the redistribution of the materials included in this newspaper provided that attribution to the source is noted and the materials are not truncated or changed.
