B-PHOT booth at EU Open Doors attracts thousands of visitors, including EC Vice-President Maros Sefcovic

B-PHOT showcased the power of light and photonics on Saturday 9 May 2015 at the occasion of the EU Open Door Day in the Berlaymont building.  Thousands of inquisitive EU citizens visited the B-PHOT booth, where B-PHOT researchers explained the basic principles of light and illustrated the impact of light technology on our daily lives. The multitude of hands-on experiments and the variety of demonstrations excited both young and old.  Whereas the “solar-boat” competition was extremely popular with kids, the infrared imaging camera and its applications impressed everybody.  

At the opening of the event the B-PHOT booth received the visit of EC Vice-President and Commissioner Maros Sefcovic who took the time to perform several experiments himself and also commended the B-PHOT researchers with their excellent booth and very successful outreach efforts.
