Group PhD Nikesh and PI Patrick welcomed the UK-based director of the Japanese Society for the Promotion of Science (a major Japanese government funder) to the Photon Science Institute. Professor Naoto Kobayashi and colleagues had discussion on both science and internationalization.
The group welcomed Dr Antonio Hurtado of the University of Strathclyde Institute of Photonics to give a seminar at the Photon Science Institute. He spoke on Neuromorphic Photonics – the use of lasers as non-linear elements in a neuromorphic system.
A welcome to Jasper, Vivek and Jiajun from the Crozier group at the University of Melbourne who visit our group for the week. This visit, funded through the Manchester-Melbourne linkage program, will allow the Melbourne group to use some of the microscopy facilities within the Photon Science Institute to understand more about their photonic devices.
