    • Modern scholarship has not seriously affected his stature in the fields of mathematics, dynamics, celestial mechanics, astronomy, optics, natural philosophy, or cosmology.
    • Seurat proposed making art based upon a scientific understanding of optics and color.
    • The easiest way to describe light rays and light cones is through geometric optics.
    • He convinced himself of a conspiracy against him, and gave up the study of optics, refusing to correspond with anyone about it.
    • This work is an encyclopaedia of mathematics, astronomy, optics and music.
    • Only after Galileo had become famous through his discoveries in the area of mechanics, dynamics and optics, did he admit his Copernican position in print.
    • Other courses Whittaker taught at Cambridge included astronomy, geometrical optics, and electricity and magnetism.
    • In applied mathematics he studied optics, electricity, telegraphy, capillarity, elasticity, thermodynamics, potential theory, quantum theory, theory of relativity and cosmology.
    • Gregory began to study optics and the construction of telescopes.
    • In 1824 David Brewster, famous for his work in optics, was the first author to use the term ‘pyroelectricity.’
    • The exhibits cover topics relating to energy, electricity, mechanics, optics, sound, light, and even nuclear energy and astronomy.
    • Regrettably, fluid dynamics is not well covered in standard physics curricula, but the ideas have natural connections to basic conservation laws, optics, and quantum mechanics.
    • From 1491 to 1494, Copernicus studied mathematics and optics at Krakow University.
    • Franck called in his graduate student, Wilhelm Hanle, who worked in physical optics, and asked if he could understand Wood's findings.
    • With the same energy with which he approached everything, Rayleigh developed laboratory courses in heat, electricity and magnetism, properties of matter, optics, and acoustics.
    • He published on optics, quantum mechanics, and relativity.
    • In optics he experimented with mirrors and with lenses.
    • But before I do so, there is one further unresolved historical issue to be explored: from whom might Vermeer have learned about optics and lenses?
    • From a physics point of view we would also like to leave geometric optics behind and use the wave nature of light rays instead.
    • Additional breadth in the curriculum comes from required courses in electronics, optics, an elective specialty course - solid state, for instance - and a senior thesis.
