The Ohio-Region Section of the American Physical Society will hold its fall meeting at The University of Toledo Friday and Saturday, Sept. 28-29.

More than 100 physicists are expected to visit campus for the event.

The theme of this year’s event is “Celebrating Planck’s 1918 Nobel Prize in Physics: The Many Implications of Energy Quanta.”

Hot topics of the meeting will include nanoscience and quantum confinement; photovoltaics and semiconductor physics; and astrophysical observations and neutron stars.

On Friday evening, there will be a banquet and a public presentation focusing on the roles of energy quantization in physics and astronomy.

These regional meetings provide an ideal venue for students and science teachers to present research results, foster future collaborations, and engage in discussion, according to Dr. Nik Podraza, UT associate professor of physics.
