A little busy…

I haven’t had much time to write a detailed optics post lately. I’m trying to get a couple of papers prepared for publication, and that’s been hindered by coursework and the travel I’ve been doing. Beyond that, I haven’t seen any new optics results recently that have leapt off the intertubes and cried out for blogging. (The odds are, of course, that I haven’t been looking hard enough.)

Hopefully that will change in the near future, but in the meantime, are there any physical science topics, preferably in optics, that anyone would like me to blog about? Consider this an open invitation to submit your requests…

P.S. For that matter, if there’s any ‘horror blogging’ requests, as well, I’d love to hear those, too!

    I put a comment on your <a href=”https://skullsinthestars.com/2008/04/07/making-anamorphic-images-part-1-piecewise-images/”anamorphic image that talks about the relationship between pupil size and depth of field, which ties into why pinhole cameras have an essentially infinite depth of field. It might warrant further explanation, if that tickles your fancy. (I will leave all further fancy tickling in the capable hands of The Girlfriend, however!)

    Christ… me and HTML… let’s try that again…

  3. PD: That’s a good idea, and I don’t know why I didn’t think of it myself. I guess you’ve earned your ‘personal demon’ title!

  4. Which idea? The pinhole camera or me tickling your fancy? πŸ˜‰

  5. Babs67: Can I say “both”?

  6. I forgot to tell you the most exciting thing I saw yesterday! I was on my way to meet Tracey and was sitting at an intersection watching the cars go through the light. I saw a red slug bug convertible WITH the top down (3 points) followed immediately by another RED slug bug. I will have to look back at my rules but had you been in the car with me i think that would have warranted at least 7 slugs to your arm! I picked up the phone to call you but then realized you were probably napping. I decided to be kind and let you sleep. πŸ˜‰

  7. Babs67: Keep in mind that you can’t hit me after the fact; I don’t want to get smacked senseless later tonight… πŸ˜›

  8. I thought I was going to tickle you senseless instead.

  9. Personal Demon says:

    OK, folks… too much tickle talk. We have moved beyond the realm of physics, passed through fantasy, and are now deeply, deeply into horror.

  10. PD- Dr. Skullstars didn’t tell you that when you called last night we were right in the middle of much, much tickling. How’s that for some nightmare fodder for you? πŸ˜‰
