Webinar: Photonics Starts from Design

May 16, 2022 @ 1:00 pm 4:00 pm EEST

PREIN and Photonics Finland present another webinar event to the series “Photonics for X”. When “Photonics for All” introduced optics manufacturing available in Finland, “Photonics start from design” takes us one step backward to the start of any R&D project. This webinar is where the optical design industry meets photonics via researchers and experts, a place where challenges will be addressed and discussed.

The webinar event is co-organized by the Institute of Photonics, UEF; Photonics Center; PREIN flagship; Photonics Finland; and will be hosted by Professor Jyrki Saarinen from PREIN, University of Eastern Finland.
