Wednesday July 8, 7pm
This will be a brief presentation all about lasers from laser safety, what makes laser light special, theory and operation of lasers and how to incorporate lasers to make your artistic projects more interesting. Marc will be bringing equipment from the lab for demonstrations, but he's prepared to discuss how you would go about making the tools yourself. So that they're safe even.
This will be your chance to get answers to any questions you may have about safe and creative things to do with lasers. He even has experience working with them on the playa, so will be able to talk about special issues there, as well.
The presenter, Marc Hertlein, is an Experimental Systems Staff Scientist with the Advanced Light Source at Lawrence Berkeley labs, as well as roboticist with SWARM.
