After an incredibly successful International Year of Light in 2015, the Michigan Light Project presented our activities at the SPIE Optics & Photonics conference in San Diego, CA in August 2016. These presentations are now online.
Please check them out and learn more about our activities.
Celebrating the International Year of Light in Michigan
IYL project: pinky-powered photons
International Year of Light in Michigan: outdoor holography
Did you know that light can cause the color to change on certain materials? Those materials are called photochromic (literally color changing). UV beads change color as a result of nanoscale shifts in the shape of the dye molecules.
Learn about this activity from NISENET.

The Michigan Light Project is a group of academics, industrialists, and artists who want to demonstrate the amazing aspects of light and energy in society as well as promote awareness that the State of Michigan is a worldwide hub of light-related industry, culture, and art.
This is an effort for the International Year of Light and beyond. Stay tuned for more information as we come online.
