The Silvercore Podcast

ILya Koshkin, AKA The Dark Lord of Optics, is an optical physicist who is extremely passionate about sharing his love and knowledge of all things optics in a straightforward and understandable way.  

With over 2 decades of experience in imaging, optoelectronics and electro-optics ILya works with a wide range of visible and infrared imaging systems, lasers, targeting payloads and weapon sights and has also dabbled in spectroradiometry and hyperspectral imaging.  This is to say, ILya’s knowledge and experience with optics is extremely well founded. Having come from the USSR, ILya also has a unique perspective on politics and has written numerous papers on the subject.
