PUBLIC TALK: Lights, Camera, Action: optics for life
A public lecture by Kishan Dholakia, Professor of Physics, University of St Andrews and 2016 Institute of Advanced Studies Short Stay Visiting Fellow.
Light is incredible. It has formed the basis of so many advances in the world around us, including revolutionising the way we communicate and interact. Importantly we have seen an mergence of the use of light in biomedical studies and healthcare as it offer unprecedented advantages for the global challenges we face in this area. In this talk, Professor Dholakia will convey some of the exciting ways light can help us understand and explore the biological and medical world and beyond. He will describe how it can be used for studying diseases, neuroscience, early detection of cancer and infection and also spot a fake whisky!
This lecture is part of the 2016 LightTALKS Series, where scientists, engineers and artists talk about optics and photonics, and how light-based technologies promote sustainable development and provide solutions to worldwide challenges in energy, education, agriculture, communications and health. The series is co-sponsored by the UWA Institute of Advanced Studies, the Imaging and Informatics Group at the Lions Eye Institute, The Optical Society, its UWA chapter, and SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics.
