Finalists in young scholars competition announced

PHILADELPHIA. . .Eighteen young physics researchers have been selected as finalists from a field of 89 applicants in a global competition to participate in Amazing Light: Visions for Discovery, an international symposium inspired by and honoring the leadership and vision of Charles Townes, winner of the 1964 Nobel Prize in physics. These young scientists, all under 40 years of age, will present their innovative research at the symposium to be held October 6-8, 2005 on the campus of the University of California, Berkeley.

The major themes for the three-day symposium were inspired by and derived from Professor Townes' own ideas and questions. Special emphasis is on possibilities for investigating new, deep discoveries about the nature of reality, as well as for developing powerful new technologies that like the laser for which Charles Townes shared the Nobel Prize may open up new domains of scientific research.

The competition is focused on exploring and advancing the future of innovative research in physics and astronomy. The 18 finalists will present research papers at a special session on October 7, 2005. The talks will be scheduled in 25minute slots (15 minutes plus 10 Q&A) in three parallel sessions according to the following topical areas:

I. Quantum Physics

II. Astrophysics, Cosmology and Physics Related Interdisciplinary Work

III. Technological Innovation

Judges include distinguished research physicists and cosmologists from around the world whose work is focused on the challenges of exploring the deep structure of reality and the technological innovations. Winners will be selected on the basis of outstanding merit. After evaluating the submitted evidence of research accomplishments and listening to the presentations, the judges will award nine prizes: three first-place prizes of $20,000 each, three second-place prizes of $10,000 each, and three third-prizes of $5,000 each at the gala closing banquet honor
