Smart lights, nonstick implants and 100th birthday of electronics at science & technology meeting

September 27, 2004--New York, NY--The AVS Science & Technology Society will hold its 51st International Symposium & Exhibition on November 14-19, 2004 in Anaheim, CA. Taking place during the 100th birthday of electronics, the Symposium will feature over 1400 papers and posters, with at least 2500 expected attendees.

Some news highlights include: a 100th birthday celebration for electronics; new techniques for preventing troublesome sticking of proteins to life-saving medical implants; an important advance in tri-color LEDs, which might eventually replace ordinary white lights as a dramatically more energy-efficient light source; a chemistry-based method of using existing and less-expensive semiconductor technology to make a crucial component for future-generation computer chips; insights on why complex "quasicrystals" have less friction than ordinary crystals; and a possible new world record for survival of living cells in a microscopic, underwater obstacle course.

The AVS Symposium Web Pressroom (http://www2.avs.org/symposium/anaheim/pressroom.html) contains links to the meeting press releases, additional story tips, and detailed lay-language versions of selected papers.
