ING Papers for SPIE’s Astronomical Telescopes
& Instrumentation Conference
Isaac Newton Group staff from
both the astronomy and engineering groups had several papers accepted by
SPIE (The International Society for Optical Engineering) for their conference
‘Astronomical Telescopes and Instrumentation –The Industrial Revolution in
Astronomy’ held from 21 to 25 June 2004, at the Scottish Exhibition and Convention
Centre in Glasgow. The range of topics reflected the range of development
interests at ING, many of the papers being about various aspects of adaptive
optics. The full list of papers featuring ING staff is below, all but one
of them having ING staff as principal author. At the conference Chris Benn
and Simon Tulloch gave oral presentations, while the remaining papers were
