CHRIS MORTENSON PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION Chris Mortenson

Artist Lecture: Friday, November 8, 2013
4:00 PM - Lundy 3
Closing Reception: Friday, November 8, 2013
5:00 - 7:00 PM 

Janalyn Hanson White Gallery at Mount Mercy University will feature the works of Chris Mortenson (Art) in the exhibit "Photography by Chris Mortenson" October 14-November 8. The gallery is open Monday through Friday from 4:00-6:00 PM. Chris' work is concerned with how society engages with the natural world through imagery, definition, and experience. His collections capture breathtaking views of scenic, rural areas of the country as well as thought-provoking compositions of cityscapes.

Jim van Howe (Physics) recently published an article in the IEEE Journal of Lightwave Technology entitled, "All-fiber, wavelength and repetition-rate tunable, ultrafast pulse generation in the 2.0 micron region." In English: he made a laser at a new color of light and can turn it "on" and "off" really fast in an unconventional way. Such a light source has potential applications in biomedical diagnostics, micromachining, and next-generation high-speed information processing. The preprint can be found at the following link.
