Optics at the U.S. Naval Academy

Optics is still alive and healthy at the U.S. Naval Academy, where 100 years ago Albert A. Michelson performed the first in a series of optical experiments of remarkable accuracy.

Smithson of the physics department treated us to a tour of the Academy's facilities and an inspection of the Michelson memorabilia displayed there.
