The IGERT seminar series features monthly seminars from leaders in academia and industry on Optics and Quantum Electronics. The seminars are on Mondays 11 to 12 noon and, otherwise noted, will be in the 7th floor Schapiro/CEPSR Interschool Lab.
In addition, monthly informal lunches for the IGERT Associates and Fellows will be provided on the first Monday of each month at 12 noon (location to be confirmed). IGERT Associates are also welcome to co-teach or participate in teaching of the IGERT courses.
An IGERT research mini-symposium will be held (coinciding with one of the seminar speakers or other campus events), where a best poster award will be selected. In addition, a professional and research ethics seminar training will be delivered annually, covering ethics and responsible conduct in multidisciplinary research.
"This NSF IGERT is unique in the combination of fundamental optical physics and device applications – on the common theme of controlling photons at the nanoscale. Students, postdocs and faculty are at the scientific forefront. It is our mandate." — Chee Wei Wong
