An Atmosphere for Innovation

In 1993, a team led by Western University researcher, Robert Sica, built and demonstrated the first practical applications of large liquid metal mirrors by integrating one into Western’s Purple Crow Lidar, which allows some of the highest time and space measurements of atmospheric temperature and composition in the upper atmosphere and improves knowledge of weather and climate phenomena.
