STEAM Cafe - Through the Lens: Tools for Extending Our Vision and Knowledge

Tuesday, November 19, 2019 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Time Zone: America/Denver
Local Time: Tuesday, November 19, 2019 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Melissa Santala, Assistant Professor of Materials Science at Oregon State University

Since their invention around 1600, optical microscopes have been used to investigate objects too small to be seen with the unaided eye. In the 20th century, the development of the electron microscope has allowed us to image materials at atomic resolution. Melissa Santala will draw upon selected historical texts and her experience as a materials scientist and microscopist to discuss the power and pitfalls of using these tools for scientific purposes. She will also consider the “A” in “STEAM” and discuss use of microscopy to create images of aesthetic and artistic value.
