Optics is the study of light. The latest High Noon installment will explore Optics and Photonics, a field that toes the line between physics and engineering covering topics ranging from telescopes to fiber communications to medical technology.
Rochester is the birthplace of the oldest optics institution in the country, resulting in an exciting, entrepreneurial city for optics. This talk will give an overview of optical phenomena with many examples of how optics impacts our daily lives.
Katelynn Sharma, a Ph.D. candidate at the Institute of Optics at the University of Rochester, will take us on a guided tour of Optics and Photonics and all of its possibilities, limited only by imagination.
Join us on Wednesday, March 29, in the History of Medicine Room at Miner. Feel free to invite your colleagues and bring your lunch. For more information, contact Linda Hasman at 275-3399.
