A new research program is under way to study how lasers, particle beams and homing projectiles could destroy ballistic missiles to protect populations against a massive first strike.
ABM defense technology deserves further research within treaty limits, but the “Star Wars” program is too large, too political, raises false hopes and poses grave dangers to national and world security.
At low temperatures, long‐chain polymers and stacked flat molecules acquire a bandgap near the Fermi level that prevents them from being metallic conductors and gives them interesting properties.
It may not be anxiety alone that keeps many undergraduates out of physics, but also factors such as inappropriate learning styles and gaps in experience with the physical world.
