Workshop on "Surface Plasmons, Metamaterials, and Catalysis"

Today is the beginning of our workshop on "Surface Plasmons, Metamaterials, and Catalysis", hosted here at Rice.  I've mentioned this before; it's actually happening, and thanks to the end of the government shutdown, the ARO sponsors are even going to be able to see the talks.  Should be fun, and I'm hoping to learn a lot.  As I've said previously, catalysis seems like magic to me sometimes.  I'll try to post a bit about what I learn.  (By the way, this is the 702nd post on this blog.  Meant to point out the Big Round Number threshold last week.)
