Tina Shih, of the MIT Lincoln Laboratory, will discuss "Engineering Applications of Light-Matter Interactions."

Abstract: The study of how light interacts with materials serves to uncover phenomena that have led to the development of the sensors and technologies we readily use today. This talk will walk through a few examples of light-matter interactions that have demonstrable applications, including ultrafast material switches, aerial 3D mapping and laser communication to the moon and beyond.
