New Podcast Series Will Touch on ‘All Things Photonics’

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
PITTSFIELD, Mass., Jan. 31, 2020 — In “All Things Photonics,” a new podcast from the publishers of Photonics Spectra magazine, host Emmett Warren holds intimate conversations with top scientists as they discuss how lasers, spectroscopy, optics, and more are being used for planetary exploration, robotic design, and advanced diagnostics. In each episode, Warren brings listeners one-on-one 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; and how the work of an African American physicist a century ago paved the way for spectroscopy’s many exciting uses in 2020. 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.

“There’s a sense of the unfamiliar becoming familiar. It’s relatable because we can all enjoy stories of mystery and discovery and a collective hope for the future. And I think audiences will enjoy our ability to break down complex ideas into rich and graspable content.” 
— Emmett Warren, host of All Things Photonics                    
In the first episode, Warren speaks with Walter Burgess, VP of Power Technology, on how lasers are transforming the moviegoing experience. He also speaks with Ronald E. Mickens, a physicist at Clark Atlanta University, about Elmer Samuel Imes, a physicist who expanded the range of applicability of quantum theory (among other achievements) more than 100 years ago.

As Warren says, “Science grabs our attention, but it’s not always in a language we all speak fluently. With our podcast series, we’re able to talk about exciting concepts that will get more people talking, more people interested, and hopefully more people thinking.”

GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
