A Century of Nobel Prizes in Light - Research that changed the World!

IYL Presentation Series

Event information

The ARC Centre of Excellence CUDOS has been hosting a series of presentations in celebration of the 2015 International Year of Light. The presentations in this series have described how scientific breakthroughs in the understanding of light have changed and improved our lives, many of them leading to Nobel Prizes. These range from the most basic level where light is necessary to the existence of life through photosynthesis, to the applications of light that have revolutionized transport and processing of information through the invention of the laser, optical fibres, lighting through the invention of LED’s, the remarkable use of light microscopy in medicine and biology, astronomy, where optical telescopes have shown us our place in the universe, and the tantalizing prospects of the quantum nature of light.

We thank you for your attendance at these special events!
