March Meeting Scientific Program
The 2011 March Meeting Bulletin of the American Physical Society, also called the Scientific Program, is a listing of all abstract presentation sessions at the March Meeting.
Microscopic look of the surface of gallium arsenide.
Quantum interference pattern on the surface of a topological insulator.
Dormant genes are often thought to come into play under stressful conditions, but new simulations show that too many genetic options could be detrimental for the microbe E. coli.
A computer chip with four superconducting qubits.
World’s first superconducting magnet created in Leiden, The Netherlands, in 1912.
Superconducting coil for future energy colliders
Natural adhesives, including the glue produced by shellfish like this mussel, have remarkable properties that researchers are now duplicating in the lab.
Close up of the bridges that connect sea urchin teeth.
Ten billion qubits are entangled in this tiny cube of silicon.
Physicists have made what they believe to be the first true single molecule transistor.
Sulci, sharply creased surface folds, are found in soft materials like bread or an infant’s arm.
Scientists measure the electrical properties of individual nanowires (green) by manipulating and positioning a conductive tip (blue).
Simulations and experiments show how the speed of a conveyor belt changes the patterns created when a fluid stream trickles onto the belt.
