Optics in nature: interesting students in optics
Author(s): Duncan T. Moore

Paper Abstract

One of the fundamental problems in American and other societies is interesting young people in science and engineering. Optics offers a unique opportunity to do that since it is one of the areas of physics and engineering which is relevant to everyday life. As professional engineers and scientists in the field, we all have an obligation to be sure that there are sufficient numbers of young people entering the field so that the long term needs of our technological society are met.
