Photonics21, the European Technology Platform representing industry and research in photonics, distinguishes students for their important contributions in Photonics Research & Innovation with industrial impact. This year, Dr. Ir. Lien Smeesters, alumni from the European Master of Science in Photonics and now post-doc researcher at VUB B-PHOT, is honoured with the European Innovation Award 2017 during the annual meeting of Photonics21.
The 2017 OSA Optical Design and Fabrication Congress will address recent advances in three sub-conferences on Optical Design, Optical Fabrication and Testing, and Freeform Optics.
To get a closer look at what industrial photonics looks like, the SPIE Student Chapter at VUB took its members for a company visit to ETAP Lighting in Antwerp (BE) and a tour in the Philips Museum in Eindhoven (NL).
PHABLABS 4.0 aims to make photonics, the science and technology of light, more accessible to youngsters from as early as ten years old up to young professionals, through the dynamic eco-system of European FabLabs.
