Science on Saturday events are fun, free science demonstrations at Lincoln Laboratory and are given several times each school year by volunteer scientists and engineers. All local community children aged 5-17 years old, their parents, and their teachers are welcome to attend these events.
Pre-registration is required. Parental/adult escort is required for all children. Electronic devices are not allowed in the facility. Adults must present a valid government-issued photo I.D. Children under the age of 5 are not admitted as this is an educational event for children 5-17 years old.

Light, Sound, Vibration, and their Remarkable Relationship

Saturday, May 18, 2019

Presented by:  Rob Haupt, Lincoln Laboratory

At Lincoln Laboratory, we use light to create sound and vibration in objects at distances from a few inches to a kilometer. Then we use light as a microphone to measure sound and light from far away. This allows us to find damages in bridges or jet engines from a safe point on the ground, and helps surgeons perform ultrasound without touching the patient.

We will discuss photon-to-photon interaction, photoacoustics, and laser vibrometry.

When registering, please register an adult first, then a child, then any remaining people in your party.
