Welcome to the TU Dresden SPIE student chapter


We are a group of undergraduate and graduate students in Dresden, Germany, with an interest in Optics and Photonics. Since september 2017, we belong to a worldwide network of student chapters supported by SPIE.

Our objective is to establish and intensify the contact between students and faculty at different optics-related groups and institutes in the Dresden area. Therefore, we host a monthly public lecture series in Hängemathe with speakers from research groups and institutes relevant to optics and photonics. Beside that, we plan to organize excursions to nearby companies.

For more information, have a look at our past Activities and some Fotos or follow us on twitter.

All students are welcome to join our Chapter!
