The talk starts by discussing imaging in general, highlighting some of the difficulties encountered when interpreting images. Then a short introduction to the nature of light shows how specialist microscopes can be used to reveal the crystalline structure of rocks. Short biog: As a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Physics, Steve’s research interests span all aspects of imaging, image processing and image analysis. This includes medical imaging (biophysics), scanning probe microscopy of atoms, molecules and surfaces (nanophysics), microscopy of earth materials (geophysics) and astrophotography 18th Feb Distinguished Visitor’s Address: Prof. John Nudds - Archaeopteryx 22nd Feb Herdmann Symposium - Climate variation through Earth’s history 27th Feb Joint meeting with NWRG Geol.
