A celebration of spectroscopy in science for Dartmouth's 250th anniversary and the discovery of coronium's 150th anniversary.
In Dartmouth's centennial year of 1869, Professor Charles A. Young discovered what appeared to be a new element in the spectrum of the sun's corona. Four distinguished speakers explore not only the history and signficance of Young's discovery, but also how spectroscopy has grown into a rich, powerful technique with wide applications in contemporary astrophysics, physics, chemistry, and the earth sciences.
Sponsored by Dartmouth's 250th Celebration, and the Departments of Physics & Astronomy, and Chemistry.
