The newly formed IEEE photonics society branch at City, University of London has been very busy over the past few months with a series of photonics "Hackathons", which involve interesting, interactive and very easy to do experiments to demonstrate the wonders of photonics and inspire school pupils and undergraduates alike.
Photonics Chapter Launches Horizons of Optics, Photonics and Emerging Sciences (HOPES) Webinar Series
With this series, the IEEE UK and Ireland Photonics Chapter is taking a different approach to seminal webinars. Instead of focussing on a single piece of research and/or innovation, we invite highly impactful researchers to discuss the future of their research domains. This will allow the speaker to share their informed view of future innovations on a platform that encourages a true exchange for shaping the evolution of science.
The first IEEE British and Irish Conference on Optics and Photonics (BICOP 2018), which will be held on the 12th – 14th December 2018 at the prestigious Royal Society in London and will include esteemed speakers from industry and academia.
