Frontiers in Optics 2015

977Student Chapter Secretary , Inbarasan Muniraj was awarded the OSA Student Chapter travel bursary to attend Frontiers in Optics / Laser Science (FiO/LS) annual meeting in San Jose from 18th – 22nd October 2015.

The Student Leadership Conference (SLC) sponsored by OSA was recently held in San Jose, California, United States. SLC brings chapter members from around the globe that help us in building a network with the peers and mentors in the area of Optics and Photonics. Following that, we had a technical conference entitled “Frontiers in Optics/Laser Science (FiO/LS),” in which I have attended few talks given by eminent scientists and professors. In addition, I also had given few talks about my research works.

We had a chance to meet and talk to the industry peoples who actually works and produces the real-time optical devices. During that meet, I have gained some knowledge to transform my academic based research works into an industrial standard that benefits the society. We had some friendly meet with some professors in the networking event after the conference, during the dinner time.

As a part of FiO/LS, they also have taken the student chapter officers to the Egypt museum.
