About This Gig

All our lives we have been immersed in a colorful sea of light. We rely on its guidance to explore the world around us. But what is light? Where does it come from? How does it move? What are colors? Why is the sky blue? What causes highway mirages? And what can light tell us about the universe? If you've ever asked yourself one of these questions, then you have come to the right place.

No prior knowledge is required to enjoy this journey into the fascinating world of light. With my university level training in physics, my 15+ years experience in tutoring and my graphical tablet to produce sketches supporting my explanations, I will be able to get everything across in a clear manner as we do our Skype lesson. I will pick you up where you are, that's a promise. The lessons are loosely based on my book "Light and Radiation Basics".

Possible Topics:

- Electromagnetic Waves
- Speed of Light
- Wavelength & Color
- Generation of Light (Bremsstrahlung, Electron Transitions, Fusion)
- Propagation of Light (Inverse Square Law, Attenuation, Random Walk)
- Reflection
- Refraction & Mirages
- Light Pressure
- Gravitational Deflection & Einstein Rings
- Olbers' Paradox

Frequently Asked Questions

  • I don't know much about mathematics. Can I still book the gig?
    Yes, you can. Though we will encounter a few formulas, I will explain and demonstrate everything you need to know to understand light and optical phenomena.
