Welcome to the extensive and ever-growing web presence of Dr. William Robertson. I am a Professor of Physics at Middle Tennessee State University. If you're a student looking for course web pages follow the teaching link.  This link also takes you to my Physics of Music pages which are of more general interest as they include some on-line audio demonstrations and my popular Physics of the Didjeridu homepage (including my BBC World Service Radio interview). 

My research interests cover a broad range of subjects in optics and acoustics.  Some key areas of current interest are acoustic and photonic band gap materials, fast and slow wave phenomena (including suoperluminal sound), surface electromagnetic excitations including surface plasmons and surface waves on photonic crystals, biosensors, and the design of innovative diffractive optics. 

The Personal link takes you to a variety of pages about me, my wonderful wife Sharon, and the web pages of our faboo pooches  Blaze and Rita. Fun stuff is not otherwise categorizable fun things. Publications is a list of my publications (boring!!). Links is a collection of interesting web links.

Finally, if your browser is Java enabled you will undoubtedly have experienced my innate "Canadian-ness" whenever you pass your mouse pointer over my image above. I don't really look like that anymore; the picture is old and it was never very good anyway! Enjoy my pages. Drop me e-mail if you have any questions or suggestions.
