Optical Design Challenge Presentations
Sunday 2 February 2020
8:10 AM - 10:10 AM
Location: Room 2007 (Level 2 West)
Session Chair:

Sessions 1A - 1D run concurrently.


Optical Design Challenge contestants will present their cutting-edge research as one of three required components of the challenge. The three components are: (1) abstract and manuscript submission; (2) on-site poster presentation (reviewed and scored); and (3) on-site "pitch" presentation (reviewed and scored).

The Student Optical Design Challenge consists of authors who are full-time students registered at an academic or research institute, performing their work either in an academic lab, a research institute or as an internship in an external company.
