Over 6500 papers will be delivered, some of them in prestigious invited-paper sessions, some in sessions of shorter 10-minute talks, and some in the form of posters. The large disciplinary areas at the meeting will be condensed matter physics, biological physics, chemical physics, new materials, fluid dynamics, polymers, and large-scale computing. Many of the presentations concern fundamental physics discoveries, while many others will look at the progress made toward implementing scientific discoveries in practical devices.
The March Meeting is a place where the latest developments in leading physics research areas (e.g., superconductivity, nanotubes, superfluids, quantum information, ultracold atoms) are reported and where whole new subjects are represented for the first time (e.g., fast electrons in graphene, session D2). The diversity of session subjects is abundant: planetary interiors (A42), ultrafast chemistry (R13), liquid splashing (P8), biological swarming (G8), optical clocks (K1), snake infrared vision (Y26), nanoplumbing (N26.4), Bose-Einstein transistors (B43.10), serial crystallography (A29.11), microscale synthetic swimmers (B29.2), plastic-explosive-degrading enzyme (P26.4), Cooper-pair molasses (Z39.11), double electromagnetically induced transparency (N43.1), vortex-phase qubits (B43.13), novel skin cream (C1.131), and antimicrobial coatings for medical devices (G29.5).
