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: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
