On 27th January 2015, B-PHOT organized the Inaugural Lecture of the VUB - TE Connectivity Chair. The lecture on 'Fiber Optics at TE Connectivity: past achievements & future opportunities' was delivered by Dr. Davy Brown, VP & CTO of Broadband Network Solutions at TE Connectivity.
To promote the scientific output of Supélec’s researchers, the Supélec Foundation organizes every year its publication prize: “le prix de la publication”. This award recognizes the PhD student of Supélec who has defended his thesis the same year and who has the best record in terms of publications. In 2014, this prize has been awarded to Martin Virte for his brilliant work about the nonlinear dynamics of quantum dot lasers. The ceremony took place during the prestigious gala from the Supélec Foundation in the National Marine Museum in Paris (France) on the 27th of November. After a challenging 180-second presentation of his research, Martin received the 3000 euros award from the members of the jury.
B-PHOT researcher Stijn Roelandt recently conducted research on the subjective perception of speckle by a human observer, which was published in Optics Express*. The rising interest in this research has resulted in the paper being selected for publication in the most recent issue of the Virtual Journal for Biomedical Optics (VJBO), which is a special feature of OSA's Optics InfoBase
During October and November 16 remarkably talented young people between 14 and 18 years old were guests at B-PHOT.
