APS Colloquium 2004

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.

An integrated video and slides presentation, created using SofTV, is available for these colloquium. SofTV requires Netscape 7.1+ or IE 6.0+. If you do not meet the SofTV viewer requirements, Real video and PDF slides of the presentation are also provided.
