Learn More: Interface Studies of Organic Materials

We are pleased to introduce our followers with the UL SPIE Student's chapter members and their everyday lab occupations. Raitis Grzibovskis is a PhD student, working in the Institute of Solid state physics, Laboratory of Organic materials. He is a SPIE member since 2012. Raitis had started his research carrier with photoconductivity measurements of organic materials, later continued with organic photovoltaic cells studies. Now, work is focused on more fundamental research - studies of interaction between organic compound and metal or other organic compound.

Research: AlN Nanopowder Spectral Characterization

From now, you will be able to follow series of articles about topical researches done by our UL SPIE Student chapter's members. We are eager to offer news and feature stories covering all fields of science, especially optics and photonics, technology, engineering and math in order to encourage promising young scientists to launch their successful careers: from small discoveries to great victories. 
Let us start with our member, physicist Bc.Sc. Paula Jankovska who had been working with aluminium nitride nanopowder spectral characterization (supervisor:  Dr. habil. Baiba Berzina); and learn more about her novel investigations.

Internal Strategic Seminar 2016: Closer to Our Annual Goals

As you know, our student chapter is a part of a great community - an international non-profit professional society for people engaged in the science and application of light. To introduce you with us - the University of Latvia SPIE (UL SPIE) Student chapter is a campus organization that engages in professional development and science outreach in our local community. 
In order to evaluate our capacity and competences to strengthen our position among other communities, we organized an Internal Strategic Seminar at the beginning of May. During the event we created an annual activities plan and estimated our output, and had fun while doing that.
