Physics and Secrecy

The American Physical Society will feature a session of “physics and secrecy” at its annual meeting in Washington DC on February 13.  I will be one of the three presenters.

In one sense, the whole enterprise of physics is a contest with secrecy and an attempt to discern the order that is hidden in natural phenomena.  But next month’s session is devoted to the more mundane form of national security secrecy and its impact on physicists and other scientists.
