Scientific Student Seminar hijacked by light reflecting from concave surfaces

On the 21st of November, UL SPIE chapter held a Scientific Student Seminar at the University of Latvia, House of Science. The fifth seminar was taken over by students working in the Laboratory of Quantum Optics. Lāse Mīlgrāve, Pauls Reinis, Roberts Berķis and Kristians Dragūns presented their research projects and achievements to prepare for the official annual report which is delivered to the management team. The joint topic was about whispering gallery resonators (WGMR). The participation in the seminar was a valuable opportunity for students to present their research in a friendly environment and receive some valuable feedback as well as gain confidence.
