SLL Fresnel Lecture

19 February 2015 15.30 GMT

(UK) - Peter Phillipson MSLL to present Society of Light & Lighting lecture on Augustine Fresnel's Wave Theory of Light on 10 March.

During the International Year of Light 2015, Augustine Fresnel's Wave Theory of Light will be two centuries old. Far from being a footnote to history, his work is as relevant today to anyone involved with light, lighting, the visual arts and science as it was revolutionary in its time.

Often wrongly typecast only by the lens that bears his name, Fresnel produced other prolific and profound lighting research that still affects our understanding of what light is and how we see the world, including the internet network, differing aspects of mobile phones, state-of-the-art medicine, the way light behaves with architecture and fine art.

Peter Phillipson MSLL will reappraise the life and work of Fresnel, along with guest appearances, artifacts and experiments at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, London on 10 March 2015, starting at 6.15PM.
