Raytracing in Rust!
I have started a project that requires the use of a raytracer. Basically, I hope to make a library for rendering optical paths using raytracing and simulate the result that one would get by looking through the optical system. Hopefully, I would like to be able to write somewhere that I will have a …
My Five-Month Journey with AI: Expectations vs Reality
Dall-E 3 prompt: Cartoon of a male physicist in a lab coat, adjusting a large optical lens with a laser beam passing through it. Beside him, an AI robot with a screen displays complex equations and offers suggestions. So, 5 months ago, I have written a post about Artificial Intelligence and General Artificial Intelligence. …
How do big telescopes look through the atmosphere – Adaptative Optics 101
Continuing my series of post covering my talk from last Christmas about the use of lasers in space and astronomy. The topic today is adaptative optics. I'll explain the reason why we need it, and how it works in simple terms. Enjoy. No surprise: telescopes are the main tool of astronomers. Since Newton, we …
What is the difference between a regular lamp and a laser? A brief history of Optics and Lasers
So this post and a bunch after this one are from a talk I presented at the end December on the topic of lasers in space and astronomy. The target the audience was members from astronomy groups in the region with some knowledge of optics but not necessarily lasers and the curious people that …
