Congratulations to Angel our ESR based at the University of Milan, and his PhD supervisor Nicola Piovella. Angel’s PhD was awarded as excellent on the 11th December 2020. This is ColOpt’s first completed PhD. Well done! 

ColOpt academics and early stage researchers @ 2020 Brazil-Scotland Meetings on Structured Light

 

 

ColOpt academics and ColOpt early stage researchers from Strathclyde and Glasgow gave invited talks and posters on aspect of Structured light on the 2020 Brazil-Scotland Meeting on Structured Light. Great initiative from early stage researchers and student chapters organizing this from both institutions! For more details look at the BraSco 2020 Website

Update:724. WE-Heraeus-Seminar 27 Jun – 30 Jun 2021 Collective Effects and Non‐Equilibrium Quantum Dynamics

ColOpt is excited to be the scientific organiser for this event, which has been rescheduled. We are currently confirming some fantastic invited speakers, and the programme will be announced early in 2021. The event is open to academics, and students. Some abstracts will be selected to give short talks. There’ll be some great science and lots of opportunities to exchange ideas and to network.

European Union joined forces with global partners to kick-start the Coronavirus Global Response

On 4 May the European Union joined forces with global partners to kick-start the Coronavirus Global Response, a worldwide pledging effort to raise €7.5 billion of funding to rapidly develop and deploy universally available and affordable diagnostics, treatments and vaccines against the coronavirus.
The opening event already raised €7.4 billion, including a significant contribution of €1 billion mobilised by Horizon 2020. This marks the role of research and innovation in the worldwide pledging marathon, which will continue in the following weeks.

Join the social media campaign and help us get the word out by using this communication toolkit.

Network event in Porquerolles, Sept 2019

The next network event of ColOpt will take place in Porquerolles in southern France close to our partner node of the Universite Cote d’Azur. The scientific program will include progress reports of the early stage researchers, invited lectures from our partners Romain Bachelard, Sao Carlos, and Philipp Slusallek (DFKI, Saarbruecken) on cold atom physics and artificial intelligence and from  David Wilkowski (NTU Singgapore) as external invited speaker.  Further training is on IP issues provided by Markus Gangl (Torggler & Hofinger, Inssbruck) and single-photon detection in quantum information provided by Jean-Michel Laurent from Andor. The event closes with a common workshop with the Strathclyde-Universite Cote d’Azur International Associated Laboratory SOLACE (Self-Organization in Lasers and Atoms and Coherence Effects) financed by the CNRS on photonics, photonic materials and quantum information.
