Optics Camp Lets Students 'Listen to the Light'

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
Optics professor Franko Kueppers (far right) hosts "Listen to the Light,” a workshop on optical free-space transmission, at Arizona Youth University Optics Camp, held earlier this month at the University of Arizona’s College of Optical Sciences. The students used lasers and photo diodes to transmit music from their MP3 players across an optical table and along hallways across the building, using mirrors to set up an optical transmission path. At optics opticscamp.jpgcamp, students in grades 9-12 who are interested in science, math and high-tech gadgets become optics researchers -- alongside College of Optical Sciences professors, scientists and students -- by participating in hands-on optics experiments that illustrate the basics of optics light sources, vision, adaptive eyewear, lasers, art, organic LEDs, sound, photography, communication, medical optics and holograms.

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...
