Focus session "Wave Propagation in Strongly Scattering Media" at the APS March Meeting

The Group on Statistical and Nonlinear Physics of the American Physical Society (APS) organizes a focus session "Wave Propagation in Strongly Scattering Media" at the 2012 APS March Meeting in Boston (27 February - 2 March, 2012).

Recently there has been great interest in the propagation of waves in strongly scattering (even opaque) media. This work has been carried out in optics, acoustics, microwaves, and terahertz waves. The statistical properties of these media have previously been characterized through measurements of scattering correlation functions, fidelity decay, conductance fluctuations, coherent backscattering, etc. Now these properties are being exploited to create new functionality, such as wave focusing by passing them through opaque media. This topic is of broad interest to researchers in many technical fields including geophysics, medical imaging, communications, sensing, etc. It is a subject that often "falls between the cracks" and a special session on this topic can nucleate new interest and spark new collaborations that break traditional boundaries between disciplines.

The abstract submission deadline is November 11, 2011.
