Dr Stephen Myers
Seeing Invisible Colors

There are certain colors of light that we can see with our eyes like red, green, blue, orange, yellow, indigo, and violet (remember roy g biv?) as well as many variations of these. However, there are also many “colors” that we cannot see with our eyes such as infra-red and ultra-violet. We encounter these invisible colors every day in various circumstances without realizing it. To see these colors we usually require special tools that can be complicated and expensive. In this interactive presentation I’ll discuss ways we can “see” these invisible colors using common everyday objects.

Stephen Myers currently serves as a research scientist and product manager at Skinfrared, LLC where he develops infrared detector technology and medical thermal imaging applications. Stephen is also a volunteer in Explora's Portal-to-the-Public (PoP) Science program and provides science demonstrations with The National Museum of Nuclear Science & History. Previously, Stephen received his PhD in Nanoscience and Microsystems (NSMS) at UNM during which he served as the President of the UNM SPIE student chapter and conducted outreach science demonstrations with the UNM NSMS program.
