From 1 May to 23 May, the student chapter launched our new seminar platform “Student chapter forum,” with three sessions.
Dr. Luca Carletti, from Università degli Studi di Brescia in Italy, gave the first lecture of the forum on the first of May. His topic was ” Nonlinear nanophotonics driven by Mie type resonances in all-dielectric nanoresonators”.
On the same day, Ms. Natalia Morais, a PhD visiting student from Paris Diderot University in France, gave the second lecture on “High-contrast AlGaAs nonlinear integrated photonics”.
The second session on the eighth of May featured a lecture by Mr. Davide Rocco, a PhD visiting student from Università degli Studi di Brescia in Italy. His lecture was on the subject of “Linear and nonlinear nanophotonics in AlGaAs nanocylinders”.
The third session, on 23 May, began with a lecture by Mr. Valerio Flavio Gili, a PhD visiting student from Paris Diderot University in France, on the subject of “Nonlinear nanophotonics on AlGaAs-on-AlOx monolithic platform”.
Dr. Niccolo Somaschi from Quandela, France gave the final lecture on “Accelerating optical quantum technologies with quantum-dot based devices”.
The Student Chapter Forum aims at providing a platform for photonics students and early career researchers to scientifically interact. The Forum, under the new title of “Photonics Vitality”, will become an anual event as one of the key activities of our chapter.
