NASCAR, and curses, and fake hands... Oh my! - LIGHT MATTERS 10.27.2016
On this month's show, we discover how scientists in Madrid have been able to dispell Rayleigh’s curse, changing the field of optics as we know it. We also feature one of the oldest NASCAR-sanctioned race tracks in the U.S. that will soon become the first major motorsports facility to install LED lighting. Biometrics researchers at Michigan State University offer a look at a 3D hand prototype being employed for heightened security and safety initiatives, and we have a wrap-up of OSA’s 2016 Frontiers in Optics conference.
