Physical Review Focus

Physical Review Focus is the APS web site (URL below) that explains one or two papers per week from Physical Review Letters at a level accessible to undergrads. We write one or two articles per week in a brief, easy-to read style and usually include color pictures and occasionally videos. We have heard positive comments from several college teachers who have used it or plan to use it as part of their courses, so we thought FEd members might be interested.

There is also an e-mail list associated with Focus. Subscribers receive a weekly message containing the first paragraph from each of the stories of the previous week.

You are invited to visit the site and contact me with any comments on how it could be improved to better serve educators. (A search engine will be added in the future.)
