Talk by Professor Robert R. Thomson, Heriot Watt University, School of Engineering & Physical Sciences, Institute of Photonics and Quantum Sciences.

Spectroscopy helps us understand the interaction of electromagnetics with matter. The Electromagnetic spectrum is extensive with visible light forming only a small portion. In this talk I’ll illustrate how information from several portions of the electromagnetic spectrum can be combined to create multiwavelength astronomy.

Robert was awarded the BSc in Physics (1st Class Honours) from Heriot Watt University (HWU) in 2000, the MSc in Optoelectronics and Laser Devices from the University of St Andrews in 2001 (a course jointly run with HWU) and the PhD in the Physics from HWU in 2006. He has authored two invited book chapters on Ultrafast Laser Inscription, and has published > 35 journal papers (including ~30 on ULI) attracting > 400 citations in total.
