CAMD - A Light Source for Science

LSU Saturday Science featuring Professor Richard Kurtz, Director of CAMD

Everything around us with is made up of atoms, and science has advanced to the point where we can "see" them individually. Identifying which atoms are which, though, is challenging. This talk will focus on how we use light to get the job done. Not only can we identify the atoms we can even identify the molecules and compounds that we find them in. We will discuss the ways that light interacts with matter and how LSU's synchrotron on Jefferson Highway is allowing us to understand the environment, discover new materials, and study everyday things around us.
