UL SPIE & European Researchers' Night: Exploring Science Whilst Having Fun

As a part of an international society advancing an interdisciplinary approach to the science and application of light, it was our pleasure to take a part in the European Reasearchers’ Night events. All the event took place simultaneously on Friday, 30 September, in over 250 cities across Europe and neighbouring countries, including Riga, Latvia. Our University of Latvia SPIE (UL SPIE) Student Chapter had even three spots across Riga - in the premises of University of Latvia Faculty of Physics and Mathematics, UL Academic Center of Natural Sciences and Institute of Atomic Physics and Spectroscopy. With family, friends, schoolmates or on their own, visitors could become a scientist for a day, participate in science activities and, most of all, have fun!

T. Pladere: Three Main Reasons why to Attend Conference “Optics + Photonics”

UL SPIE member Tatjana Pladere
It was my second time to attend the international conference “Optics + Photonics”, which was held in always sunny San Diego, CA, USA. On the one hand, I already knew what to expect but on the other hand, I was sure that experience gained due to participation in this conference and travelling in the States could never be the same.
