Detecting Alzheimer's in the eye, lifting fingerprints without touching the surface

September 21, 2005--Frontiers in Optics 2005--the 89th Annual Meeting of the Optical Society of America--will be held from October 16-20 in Tucson, Arizona, alongside Laser Science XXI, the annual meeting of the American Physical Society Division of Laser Science. Reporters interested in obtaining a badge for the meeting should contact Elizabeth Bowen at 410.821.8220, elizabethb@imrecommunications.com.

PLENARY SESSION HIGHLIGHTS: 100 YEARS OF EINSTEIN, ATTOSECOND-SPEED CAMERAS, AND IMAGES FROM SATURN MOON TITAN
At a plenary and awards session, five speakers will present topics that span numerous realms in cutting-edge optics. Stan Whitcomb of Caltech will celebrate the 100th anniversary of Albert Einstein's seminal paper on special relativity, which showed that the speed of light was the same for all observers, regardless of their own speeds. Ferenc Krausz of the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics and Ludwig-Maximilians-University, both located in Germany, will describe controlling and measuring processes on the time scale of the attosecond, or a billionth of a billionth of a second, a timescale important for the motion of electrons in the atom. Drawing from the NASA Huygens Probe's Descent Imager/Spectral Radiometer (DISR), Martin Tomasko of the University of Arizona in Tucson will present stunning images, recently captured in the Cassini mission to Saturn, of the mysterious moon Titan. Receiving OSA's Ives Medal, Theodor W. Hansch of the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics, who has made many important atomic measurements with world-record levels of detail, will discuss his "passion for precision." Texas A&M's Marlan O. Scully, the recipient of the 2005 APS Schawlow Prize, will describe theoretical connections between the quantum theory of lasers, black hole radiation and the ultracold gases known as Bose-Einstein con
