Johns Hopkins Professor to Keynote Infrared 100 Symposium

The joint RPS/RAS symposium in London in October will be keynoted by respected astrophysicist Professor Paul Feldman. Paul will be talking about Robert Williams Wood's life and work and will no doubt also touch on his own current research at JHU which has recently been in space ultraviolet astronomy and spectroscopy. (Although we're concentrating on infrared, let's not forget that Wood was also a pioneer of UV photography.)

The October symposium will take place in and around the RAS's premises in Burlington House. This complex of historic buildings in Piccadilly, central London, is best known as the home of the Royal Academy. If you have an interest in any application of infrared - photographic and thermal - then these are dates for your diary. We're also delighted to acknowledge the financial support of FLIR Systems.
