Don't miss the "Light Interference" Expo onsite in Strasbourg

Monday 8 April from 10:00 to Wednesday 10 April 17:00
Following the success of past light-based exhibits we are announcing the 2024 show: "Light Interference"

A look at the different ways in which light can "interfere" with matter, a central theme of SPIE Photonics Europe, bringing together art and research and raising fundamental questions of how we understand physical phenomena and how they can be used to tackle some of today's challenges in society.  Learn more.

The exhibition is organized by Christine Montgomery in collaboration with ICube and SPIE.
