On October 21st, researchers at UCSB's Photonics Society celebrated the international Day of Photonics!
Faculty advisor Dr. John Bowers (top-left), his research group and the UCSB Photonics Society members at the university sport their Photonics Society T-Shirts to commemorate the day.
We are the UCSB Photonics Society, a joint chapter of the IEEE Photonics Society (IPS) and the Optical Society of America (OSA). We host periodic guest seminars in recent photonics research, hold photonics-themed banquets and workshops, and organize outreach to the surrounding community in photonics education.
The IEEE Photonics society awarded us the Chapter of the Year in 2016, as well as Most Innovative Chapter in 2017.
