Explore Photonics

The Max Planck School of Photonics offers interested listeners all over the world the opportunity to gain insights into exciting research on photonics in various formats and for free. Here you find all dates and registration links for the upcoming events.

Q&A Sessions

Do you consider joining the Max Planck School of #Photonics #MSc + #PhD program (or the #PhD only track) but still have a hundred questions on your mind? Well, that's not a problem because we have a solution: We are happy to announce our first special Q&A session for applicants on October 24, 1 p.m. CEST.

The Max Planck Schools application portal is already open, and we would like to make it easier for you to apply. In the Q&A session we are therefore going to answer all your questions about studying in Germany, give you more information about the application process, talk about research fields and much more.

So, don't miss the opportunity to find out more about the Max Planck School of Photonics and join us on our special Q&A Session!

Lectures and Talks

Our goal is to stregthen the young Photonics community by making the latest photonics research accessible to you in free lectures and events. That is why, for example, our Fellows, who are among the best photonics researchers in the world, give an MPSP Lecture Series. Together with partners like OSA or SPIE chapters, we also organize many other exciting talks and lectures. Finally, you will also find interesting public events from our partner institutions and other organizations featured here. So have a look around, register and join the network!

MPSP Lecture Series 2022: Science up close!
The science of light has just as many facets as light itself - from nanophotonics to quantum optics or strongfield physics there are countless interesting fields of research. Our MPSP Fellows, i.e. researchers, are active in many of them. And now you can get some insights into this research! From end of August to November 2022 we’ll again have an exciting MPSP Lecture Series for you (almost) every Wednesday at 5 p.m. CET (= 3 p.m. UTC | 11 a.m. EDT | 8.30 p.m. IST). A MPSP Fellow reports 45 minutes on her/his research. Afterwards, you can ask and discuss questions for 15 minutes. more

New MPSP events will be posted here soon.
