SPIE is sharing a very special book that celebrates light this year at Photonics West 2015.
2015 was designated the International Year of Light and Light-Based Technologies by the United Nations and UNESCO in late 2013. (IYOL)
The SPIE published book, Celebrating Light, 50 Ways Light-based Technologies Enrich Our World, is a must-have. As John Dudley, steering committee chair for the International Year of Light says in his forward, “The volume celebrates a selection of 50 applications of light that have made the world a better place. A central message of the wonderful book is that light science and photonics technologies provide a remarkable range of solutions to the challenges that the world faces today.”
If you are lucky enough to see one of these books, grab it. You can still get one at SPIE’s IYOL Booth in the concourse.
Congratulations to Kathy Sheehan and SPIE staff who put this book together. It is truly a remarkable project.
