In July 2019, we hosted our first PhD student workshop with invited speakers from TU Dresden, Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf and Fraunhofer IPMS. We provided a great framework for people from different institutes to share their experiences and exchange ideas.
With different disciplines of optics and photonics based in Dresden, we see huge potential for further workshops. Mainly PhD stundents enjoyed the chance to present their latest work in two sessions.
Afterwards we had a BBQ party together, which offered great oppotunity for fruitful discussions and networking.
