SLEIGHT Science Event #7

Important information

Due to public health measures, the event took place in hybrid mode. The guest speakers were invited to present their work on site and were broadcasted via Cisco Webex, or presented remotely.


The 7th SLEIGHT Science Event featured a unique set of sessions devoted to the full range of the Graduate School research and graduate education topics with the aim to further foster interaction among the SLEIGHT community and with its partners in other research, innovation, or R&D environments. Keynote lecturers of international standard addressed system design for laser machining, dynamics of ultrafast laser-surface interaction processes, diagnosis through time resolved electron microscopy, diffractive optics, micro-optics and nanophotonics, metamaterials applied to chemistry and biology, but also the use of machine learning approaches in physics as well as the use of synchrotron radiation to explore osteocytic processes.

All SLEIGHT scientists had an opportunity to interact with their peers and present their results on recent work. Special emphasis was put on master and doctoral students and post-doctoral fellows, who were offered a full panel of presentation opportunities, including oral presentation, "pitches" on research projects, and plans for a future Manutech-SLEIGHT Student Chapter.
