From space exploration and quantum optics, to biomedical imaging and defense, today’s top scientific minds are applying lasers, spectroscopy, microscopy, and more to deliver cutting-edge innovation to our evolving world. In each episode, Photonics Media News Editor Jake Saltzman hosts intimate conversations with those pushing the boundaries of human knowledge. 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.
