United Nations Proclaims an International Year of Light in 2015
Date:12/23/2013

f relativity, believing that the laws of nature that give us light must surely be true no matter how fast we are moving. Now we know that even electrons and protons behave similarly to waves of light, in ways that continue to astonish us. And the optics and photonics technologies developed for space exploration have rendered many valuable spin-off applications in everyday life.”

“Science expands our ability to solve the pressing challenges we face in areas important to quality of life for every person. Photonics is a crucial technology in many of those cross-disciplinary solutions as well as our ability to learn more through exploring the universe,” said SPIE President-Elect Philip Stahl. “The International Year of Light will help raise awareness of the possibilities inherent in light-based science and engineering, and inspire new hope in those who are still waiting for solutions to their challenges. SPIE is delighted with the United Nations proclamation and excited about this powerful opportunity to help further greater understanding of photonics.”

Light is more than just science and technology, Stahl noted: “It is one of the ways we experience and represent our world, through vision and the visual arts. And, it is central to how we express our deepest emotional and philosophical thoughts.”

“Light matters to all of us,” said Ana María Cetto from the National Autonomous University of Mexico. “The IYL will create a forum for scientists, engineers, artists, poets and all others inspired by light to interact both with each other and with the public so as to learn more about the nature of light, its many applications, and to discuss its role in our culture.”

“Civilization would not exist without light; light from our Sun and light from the focused and coherent lasers which now have become an important part of our daily lives—from scanning packages at supermarkets, to eye surgery, and to IT communications across oceans,” said Nobel La
