20 October: Light the Future with Michio Kaku

Join OSA as we celebrate our 100th anniversary with the Light The Future speaker series featuring distinguished scientists, engineers and Nobel Laureates. Michio Kaku, futurist and theoretical physicist, City College of New York, will give a public presentation at FiO, Thursday, 20 October 2016. Sir Peter L. Knight, emeritus professor, Imperial College, London, OSA 2004 President and OSA Fellow will serve as the Master of Ceremonies for this program.  This program will also feature a special Ignite the Future segment where predictions of what’s next in optics will be given by Nobel Prize winners, including Nicolaas Bloembergen, Robert F. Curl, Roy J. Glauber,  John L. Hall, W.E. Moerner, William D. Phillips and David J. Wineland.  

"Optics of the Future: Exploring the Universe and the Brain"
This talk explores the physics behind exciting new fields, such as detecting gravity waves from black holes, detecting twins of the earth in space, energizing laser-powered star ships, and unraveling the Big Bang. It will also explore inner space, e.g. the use of optogenetics to map the neural pathways of the human brain in the Connectome Project, one of the great science projects of the future.
