Bharat Ratra Kansas State University, Department of Physics Abstract: Experiments and observations over the two last decades have persuaded cosmologists that (as yet undetected) dark energy is by far the main component of the energy budget of the current universe. I review a few simple dark energy models and compare their predictions to observational data, to derive dark energy model-parameter constraints and to test consistency of different data sets. I conclude with a list of open cosmological questions. Bio: Bharat…

The 2020 March Meeting of the American Physical Society is being held in Denver, March 2-6. The APS March Meeting represents one of the largest annual gatherings of physicists and provides a unique opportunity for the professional development of Mines physics students. As a sampling, it includes tutorials, career advice, networking opportunities, a grad school fair, and a large vendor exhibit of the state-of-the-art in equipment used in physics research. This is all in addition to invited symposium and contributed…

Karen Daniels North Carolina State University, Department of Physics Abstract: A droplet of pure water placed on a clean glass surface will spread axisymmetrically, and a droplet of mercury will bead up into a spherical droplet. In both cases, the droplet is minimizing its surface energy -- creating an object with a minimized surface area -- and there is nothing to break the symmetry. Remarkably, droplets of the room-temperature liquid gallium-indium (EGaIn), which like all metals have an enormous surface…

Melissa Patterson American Institute of Physics Publishing Abstract: New scientists aspire to contribute to their disciplines by conducting interesting research and publishing their findings to advance science.  As part of their training, they are not only responsible for learning and understanding the technical aspects of their scientific work but the fundamental expectations and obligations in its honest execution.  Responsible conduct of research and publication ethics can sometimes be challenging.  While most researchers may feel they have a good grasp of…

Francis Slakey American Physical Society, Office of Government Affairs Abstract: What if you erased the board and redesigned APS lobbying and advocacy from scratch?  What issues would you work on, what techniques would you deploy?  That’s precisely the position the APS Office of Government Affairs found itself in three years ago.  The talk will describe the circumstances APS faced, and how we responded, focusing on particular APS campaigns that successfully pushed back against federal proposals for deep cuts to R&D…
