Full-Spectrum Science with Ron Hipschman: Lasers
7:00 and 9:00 p.m.
Osher Gallery 1, Kanbar Forum
Join Exploratorium scientist Ron Hipschman for colorful explorations of the physical world.
In 1960, the laser was known as "a solution looking for a problem." Now we can hardly imagine life without them. Learn what's special about laser light, how it's made, and how it's used in everything from DVD players to eye surgery to fusion energy research.
Since joining the Exploratorium in 1971, Ron Hipschman has worked as an exhibit developer, author, teacher, and webcast host. He currently works on the Exploratorium's Environmental Initiative, implementing and maintaining a collection of environmental monitoring sensors and developing visualizations for the Fisher Bay Observatory Gallery's super-resolution media wall. In addition to Full-Spectrum Science, Ron hosts the monthly After Dark series Everything Matters: Tales from the Periodic Table.
