INSTITUTE OF APPLIED PHYSICS - 7 times successfull at the world's largest photonics conference

7 times successfull at the world's largest photonics conference

PhD-students of the IAP brought home seven prices from the international conference PHOTONICS WEST in San Francisco.
The "Photonics West" is the world's largest trade fair and conference in the fields photonics, laser and optical technologies, with around 20,300 visitors and 1,200 exhibitors in 2013.

Subconference: "Fiber Lasers: Technology, Systems, and Applications" theme: "High Performance 2"
