Dr. James M. Palmer passed away on Thursday, January 4, 2007 after a courageous battle with cancer. His book, The Art of Radiometry, by James M. Palmer and Barbara G. Grant, is available from SPIE Press.
LATE FLASH: Dr. Palmer has officially retired from the University of Arizona as of 6/30/2004. However, he is not going away real soon now. He will continue to teach OPTI 400/500, as well as assist Dr. Nofziger, for the foreseeable future. Small research projects, such as refractive index measurements, will continue to be supported, and other small-scale tasks may be undertaken as well. Hopefully this move will allow more time for preparation of various publications (“The Art of Radiometry,” etc.).
