Students KA Aarschot exploring photonics with Quantum SpinOff project

November 22, 2016 at 14:48

The final year students Science Mathematics from Kamsa Atheneum Aarschot visited B-PHOT research group to learn how innovative photonics research supports high-tech entrepreneurship and answers future global challenges.  

The students started their day at the VUB with workshops where they handle their own mini-projects linked to the topics of class courses in physics provided by the Photonics Explorer educational program. 

After lunch, professor Heidi Ottevaere shared different real-life projects illustrating both fundamental and applied photonics research integrated in sustainable R&D. 

In a second phase of the Quantum SpinOff project the students will create their own project in physics and photonics that they will present in May 2017 to a professional jury of researchers and entrepreneurs.
