Laser-Based Identification of Pathogenic Bacteria
Rehse, Steven J.
Physics Teacher, v47 n3 p152-156 Mar 2009

Physicists are typically untroubled professionally by the presence of these bacteria, as their study usually falls safely outside the realm of our typical domain. In the last 10 years, however, several events have occurred that demand the attention of the general populace--including the ranks of physicists among them.
