New Blog: Idle Diffractions
A colleague of mine has launched a new blog, focused (as it were) on optics, Idle Diffractions (it's sponsored by the company we both work for). Kevin Thompson is ORA's vice president of engineering and he's a really interesting guy with over 30 years of wide-ranging optical design experience. He also collects optics books including some really, really old ones, and he has a corresponding interest in the history of optics and optical design. His first post talks about the Hubble Space Telescope, a subject on which he has some personal experience. Kevin plans to write more on the Hubble and on many other aspects of optics old and new in the weeks and months to come.
