Meet an Astronomer | New Technologies for Watching the Night Sky with Dr. Kyler Kuehn
Lowell Observatory’s Deputy Director for Technology, Dr. Kyler Kuehn, has spent more than a dozen years building and improving astronomical instruments in order to give astronomers the best possible “eyes” for observing the heavens. Dr. Kuehn will describe some of the technologies that he has helped to develop, from enormous digital cameras made of dozens of charge-coupled devices, to robotic “Starbugs” that precisely position hundreds of optical fibers simultaneously, to microscopic devices etched on silicon wafers that block out the emission from Earth’s atmosphere and give astronomers a pristine view of distant stars and galaxies.
