Lien Smeesters was chosen to be a jury member in the SPIE International Year of Light Photo Contest to evaluate different photographs about light and light-based technologies. The SPIE Photo Contest is organised to raise awareness about the International Year of Light 2015 Celebration and the vital role of light and light-based technologies in daily life. A panel of judges evaluated nearly 800 photos on content, scientific interest, creativity and execution. The winning photographs will be featured on the covers of the SPIE Professional magazine in 2015.
