Applied Optics Lunchtime Seminars

All talks are on Wednesdays at 1pm. The venue will usually be the Tower 2nd Floor Lecture Theatre unless otherwise stated. The information will also be printed on the posters, and in the emails advertising the talks.

Talks are generally every fortnight, although external speakers are welcome to give a seminar on any Wednesday that's free - please speak to or email Steve Sharples to make sure a room is available if it's not on one of the dates below.
