p. 1239. Twilightlocked

  • Ian Walmsley


‘Twilight’ concludes this VSI by acknowledging some of the topics that have not been covered: the fantastic discoveries arising from looking at other regions of the electromagnetic spectrum than the visible, and the ubiquity of optical devices in everyday life, as well as the myriad of imaging devices such as multi-mirror telescopes and massive synchrotrons. The science and technology of optics is vibrant, opening up new areas for exploration and new applications. Light continues to reveal new mysteries and to inspire new devices: it still engages and fires our imagination as it has done for centuries.
