Optics In Nature — Bill Wolfe   2 comments

This glass sphere is in the lobby area of the College of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona.

On February 10, 2011, the Tanuri Ridge Education & Recreation Series program was given by the University of Arizona, College of Optical Sciences, Professor Emeritus (and Tanuri Ridge Resident) Bill Wolfe, on “Optics In Nature.” The following information on Bill is from the College of Optical Sciences website:

Bill Wolfe joined the Optical Sciences Center in 1969 and retired in 1995 after a 26-year career. He received his undergraduate degree in physics from Bucknell University and earned postgraduate degrees in physics and electrical engineering at the University of Michigan. A noted author and researcher in optical engineering, Bill helped translate the study of optics in ways we can all understand and appreciate. His contributions to space programs, military defense, and commercial applications have defined a productive, innovative, and successful career in infrared optics. Bill generously established this scholarship to honor his family and support graduate students pursuing careers in infrared optics.

After Bill’s presentation, we toured the College of Optical Sciences on the University of Arizona campus.
