Applied Optics Lunchtime Research Seminars

The Applied Optics Group Lunchtime Seminars - colloquially known as "Optical Lunches" - will be running in the 2012-2013 academic year. Everyone is welcome and we'd encourage undergraduates to attend.

Regular research seminars have resumed under the direction of David He.

  • Place: Room 203, Tower (the Tower's only lecture theatre)

I am going to need willing volunteers to give talks. I would also like folks to think of external speakers they would like to invite to give a talk. As a rough guide, academics might give a talk once every year or so, post-docs every year or two, postgrads once every two or three years. I'm very keen to get good external speakers.

As the Applied Optics Group is in multiple locations (in multiple buildings), it is more important than ever to keep everyone abreast of what's going on. The ever-increasing amount of cross-disciplinary work provides a fantastic opportunity for researchers to hear talks in new areas.

Talks are usually very informal - they can be as short as 15 minutes; usually 30-40 minutes is about right. Alternatively, if you want to give a short talk, then we can run a session with two short (15-20 minute) talks. We have the room booked for an hour. Tea and biscuits might be available afterwards in the lab next door.

Talks will be once every two weeks. The list of forthcoming talks is here: Talks 2012-2013.
