The first annual Photonics Society Banquet was held on April 24th, at the Mosher Alumni house on the campus of the University of California Santa Barbara. The banquet is intended for Photonics scientists from academia and industry to get together, while also learning about early photonics research in the Santa Barbara area. The event includes a social hour and catered dinner (included in ticket).
Following a dinner & social hour, Dr. Jerry Wyss of Toyon Inc. delivered a lecture on
"Photonic RF Antennas in the Goleta Valley - A Historical Perspective".
Dr. Jonathan Doylend from Intel also presented, giving some insight into Intel's photonics research.
The event sold out, with about 70 people attending.
We hosted 10 different companies and 11 research groups (and 2 non-UCSB universities), comprising 21 different photonics groups in the Santa Barbara area!
