Applied Optics Lunchtime Seminars

All talks are on Wednesdays at 1pm. The venue will 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.

This year, I've had to shuffle a few of the dates around, so they're not quite as regular as every two weeks. This is because a few of the originally-booked dates clashed with UCAS days, and EEE want to use the lecture theatre for something on those dates.
