Optics is the branch of physics that studies the behavior and properties of light, and scholars of Arab and Islamic civilizations made significant contributions to the field after translating, critiquing, and building on Greek studies.

The lecture will be delivered by Dr. Hassan Abu Al Khair, a researcher specializing in optics and manuscript science. Dr Al Khair holds a PhD in optics for his studies of two of Ibn Al-Haytham’s publications and Taqi Aldin Ibn Marouf Al-Rased’s book Hadaqat Al Absar.
