APS Colloquium 2001
The monthly APS Colloquium series is intended for the benefit of the Advanced Photon Source community as well as the Argonne community by bringing distinguished scientists in all disciplines to lecture on topics of general interest. Objectives include the cross-fertilization of research initiatives at various institutions and the identification of possible uses of the Advanced Photon Source. The lecturer is also invited to spend an additional day visiting with scientists at Argonne.
