“10th Long Night of Science” on 21 May 2022 held at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light (MPL).


The event attracted around 1000 people from general public. ESR Toby Bi was involved by setting up different stations and demonstrating basic optical components such as lenses, prisms and band-stop filters.

“Scientastic”campus-wide science festival at EPFL

ESRs Mikhail Churaev and Aleksandr Tusnin were involved in the Science festival “Scientastic” at EPFL for the exhibit “Comment ça marche” (how does it work) on the theme of ‘light’.  They showcased basic techniques that they use every day in the lab as well as some demonstration experiments that have helped visitors to understand the physics of light. ESRs explained complex processes of light guiding and manipulation using an optical fountain and the tiny photonic chips developed in their lab.


The event attracted 7,000 people (families, children, high school students and adults).

Photon-photon polaritons in microresonators

Scientists at the University of Bath have found a way to bind together two photons of different colours, paving the way for important advancements in quantum-electrodynamics – the field of science that describes how light and matter interact.
