This meeting will take place in the RAS Lecture Theatre
In October 1910 Professor Robert Wood presented his paper to the Royal Photographic Society in London 'Photography by Invisible Rays', describing the use of an infrared plate to make a permanent image in the near infrared. since that time significant advances have been made in thermal infrared imaging, with applications across a broad spectrum from medicine, industry and astronomy.
There are two day seminars - the first on the development and general applications of infrared imaging, and the second on infrared imaging in astronomy.
