What physicists can do to improve international security?

Max-von-Laue-Vortrag von Prof. Dr. Steve Fetter
University of Maryland, College Park, USA, im Rahmen der virtuellen 84. Jahrestagung der Deutschen Physikalischen Gesellschaft (DPG) und der DPG-Tagung der Sektion Kondensierte Materie (SKM). (siehe: https://skm21.dpg-tagungen.de/)

After developing nuclear weapons, physicists were at the forefront in alerting policymakers and the public to the dangers of nuclear war. National academies, non-governmental organizations, and individual scientists helped conceive and promote arms control concepts and develop verification technologies which formed the foundation for treaties that enhanced international security and stability. That foundation is now crumbling, as treaties are discarded and a new generation of nuclear weapon systems is under development. Moreover, new security challenges are arising from emerging technologies, including quantum sensors and computing; artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robotics; cybersecurity; small satellites; and gene synthesis and editing. The physics community can play an important role in educating policymakers and the public about these risks and how they can be reduced.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.

Brackets

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).

Phrases

Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
