Technology will no longer merely be used to augment the visitor experience. It won’t be an add on. It won’t be extra.
Technology will be the attraction, every bit as much as sculpture, ceramics, or paintings.
Moving forward, technology will now feature in the institution’s programming every bit as much as its Robert Indiana “LOVE” sculpture, the first and largest of its kind he ever created. Every bit as much as its esteemed collection of Japanese Edo Period artwork. Every bit as much as its Van Gogh at the height of his powers oil painting.
And Van Gogh, who died over 130 years ago, allows Newfields to make the leap when THE LUME Indianapolis debuts in June 2021.
Researchers at the Technion — Israel Institute of Technology have developed precise radiation sources that may replace the expensive and cumbersome facilities currently used for such tasks. The suggested apparatus produces controlled radiation with a narrow spectrum that can be tuned with high resolution, at a relatively low energy investment. The findings are likely to lead to breakthroughs in a variety of fields, including the analysis of chemicals and biological materials, medical imaging, X-ray equipment for security screening, and other uses of accurate X-ray sources.
Published in the journal Nature Photonics, the study was led by Professor Ido Kaminer and his master’s student Michael Shentcis as part of a collaboration with several research institutes at the Technion: the Andrew and Erna Viterbi Faculty of Electrical Engineering, the Solid State Institute, the Russell Berrie Nanotechnology Institute (RBNI), and the Helen Diller Center for Quantum Science, Matter and Engineering.
