1 Scopus citations


Using a room-temperature FLIR infrared camera, we have developed an entire outreach program that allows students of all ages the chance to "see" their world from 8-12 microns. It is a world seldom seen by the same person that, ironically, has 12 megapixels of visual "high-def" in his or her shirt pocket. It is Bill Wolfe's world, and in his recognition we are honored to share some of it with you.
