The College of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona has outlined a series of events headlining FiO in the celebration of 50 years of Optical Sciences at the U of A.
What does this mean for you? Plenty of research symposia, an old school western banquet, and Observatory tours! Time to take advantage of these excellent opportunities to interact with your colleagues, network with some new ones, have delicious food, and hear about cutting-edge research to broaden the spectrum of your current optics knowledge.
The Research Symposia:
Witness the extraordinary history of the College of Optical Sciences (OSC) on Sunday October 19th at 16:00 to hear about Image Science, Biomedical Optics, Quantum Optics, and Semi-Conductor Physics at OSC from experts in these fields. Be sure to attend the Symposium on 50 Years of Lasers in Ophthalmology on Wednesday October 22nd; it will feature talks on the limits of human vision, lasers in retinal imaging and more.
50 Years of Optical Science Banquet:
Enjoy an evening in the Old Tucson studios on Wednesday October 22nd with some traditional western cuisine and old school western entertainment! Dean Thomas Koch will present the highlights of OSC’s history and the current groundbreaking research. **Registration is required for this event at a separate cost.
Take an exclusive tour of the College of Optical Sciences and the Steward Observatory Mirror Lab. The College houses a unique array of scientists and research topics, take a look at their website, choose a topic of interest and schedule an appointment or a visit with a faculty member![ http://www.optics.arizona.edu].Visit the site where the largest optics on earth are being molded, ground, and polished for astronomical observations, including the future 80-foot diameter aperture Giant Magellan Telescope.
We are 19 days away from the conference, better get your thinking caps ready for this upcoming exchange of knowledge. Be sure to check my blog during the conference for daily digests on the best of FiO!
