Media Webcast on Discoveries in Acoustics

27.10.2011
Scientists will present some of the latest findings from the science of sound at a webcast press briefing at 8 a.m. PDT (11 a.m. EDT) on Monday, October 31, 2011.

The briefing will cover select topics being presented at the 162nd meeting of the Acoustical Society of America (ASA) in San Diego, Calif., October 31–November 4, 2011.

Media representatives not attending the meeting are invited to participate in this live webcast.

What: Media Webcast: Notable Research from Acoustical Society Meeting

When: Monday, October 31, 2011; 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. PDT (11 a.m. – noon EDT)

Webcast Registration: http://www.aipwebcasting.com

Onsite Location: Pacific Salon 4, Town and Country Hotel, San Diego, Calif.

Panelists
• Aubrey España, Applied Physics Laboratory, University of Washington, will discuss the detection of unexploded ordnance with acoustics.
• Braxton Boren, New York University, will present how acoustic archeology reveals the true sound of Renaissance Venice.
• Lisa Heimbauer, Department of Psychology and Language Research Center, Georgia State University, will compare speech perception in a chimpanzee to that of humans.

• Andrew Piacsek, Central Washington University, will present context and final thoughts on the presentations and relay questions to the rest of the panel.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Demonstration of a single molecule piezoelectric effect

Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
