Today's top scientists are using lasers, spectroscopy, optics, and more for planetary exploration, robotic design, and advanced diagnostics. In each episode of this podcast from the publishers of Photonics Spectra magazine, host Emmett Warren holds intimate conversations with those pushing the boundaries of human knowledge.
Hear how 3D printed microscopes and smartphones offer the best hope for diagnosing disease in the developing world; how an array set up in Antarctica may soon provide long-sought evidence of the "Big Bang"; or how the work of an African-American physicist a century ago paved the way for spectroscopy's many exciting uses in the 21st century and beyond. Notable guests include UCLA researcher Aydogan Ozcan, Duke researcher Adam Wax, Harvard researcher Ben Schmitt, author and Clark Atlanta professor Ronald Mickens, Nobel Prize winner Donna Strickland, and USC physicist Andrea Armani.
