2017 Schawlow-Townes Symposium on Photonics
October 12, 2017 - 9:00am to 5:00pm
55 Colonel By Drive, Ottawa, ON
Colonel By South Foyer
This annual symposium aims to bring to light the research and discoveries of photonics experts from across Canada and from around the world.
Bridging the gap between theory, research and applied science, the Schawlow-Townes Symposium explores the science of light from all angles. It’s a gathering of the brightest minds in the field who, like the symposium’s namesakes, continually strive to push the boundaries of photonics.
