Upcoming MPSP Events

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.

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!

The Optics & Photonics Society of the University of Exeter organizes exciting lectures in their "OPTALKS". We are very pleased that they have asked Prof. Peter Hommelhoff, MPSP Fellow at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, to speak in their next event. Topic of his lecture: Particle acceleration on a nanophotonic chip. You can find more information via the "more" link. more
What is actually so great about photonics? In this lecture series jointly organized with the University of Glasgow Optical Society, photonics research is explained in such a way that even newcomers to the field understand it! The concept is: two entertaining speakers, one hour, research insights and discussion. Meet Dr. Rair Macedo from the University of Glasgow andMPSP Fellow Dr. Falk Eilenberger from the Friedrich Schiller University Jena and get to know photonics - the brightest science in the world. more

The Optics Students Karlsruhe (OSKar) present a Symposium on the Emerging Role of ML and AI in Optics and Photonics on June 18th at 15:00 CEST. This symposium will consist of 4 sessions given by experts in their areas discussing  how machine learning and artificial intelligence have impacted their fields. Topics include biomedical optics, optical communications and more! Stay tuned for the complete speaker list and schedule released on the event page.

The "Green Room" is a virtual book club and activism space initiated by our Fellow Dr. Hanieh Fattahi at the FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg and the Max Planck Insitute for the Science of Light. The club discusses monthly about how to make society aware of relevant issues with scientific tools that we have in hand. This month, they have a very special online event with Prof. Mike Hulme from Cambridge. In this online 45 min panel discussion they'll discuss about “why we disagree about climate change”. more
Our partner institute, the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, is currently organizing a Distinguished Lecture Series with many exciting guest speakers. Among them is our MPSP Fellow Christine Silberhorn from Paderborn University. Participation in the lectures is free - all you have to do is register for the MPL newsletter.  more

MPSP Coffee Breaks

The virtual MPSP Coffee Breaks offer the young photonics community a platform for the exchange of current research and for networking. In this event series, Master and PhD candidates present their research projects in about 20-minute talks and then discuss them with the audience. So join in and get to know exciting research topics and other young researchers!

Speaker: Emma Celina Brambila Tamayo
MPSP Research Phase PhD candidate
PhD thesis subject: Multiphoton entangled photon sources
Register and join in!
