All Things Photonics
Author: Photonics MediaSubscribed: 43Played: 974
Hear how 3D printed microscopes — and those developed for a fraction of the cost — offer our best hope for diagnosing disease in the developing world; how silicon photonics and biophotonics are invigorating advances in quantum computing and medical diagnostics, respectively; and how a series of femtosecond laser pulses and black metals can provide reliable access to clean water around the world.
Notable guests include Nobel Prize winner Donna Strickland; Columbia University Eugene Higgins Professor of Electrical Engineering and 2021 OSA Vice President Michal Lipson; UCLA researcher Aydogan Ozcan; inventor of the Foldscope microscope Manu Prakash; 2021 SPIE President-Elect and founder of the Vanderbilt Biophotonics Center Anita Mahadevan-Jansen; Duke researcher Adam Wax; and USC physicist Andrea Armani.
All Things Photonics is produced by Photonics Media and airs biweekly, on Tuesdays. The podcast was a shortlisted finalist in two categories — Best Science & Medical Podcast and Best Technology Podcast — for The Publishers Podcast 2021 Awards.
