Introducing: the Photonics Online Meetup

In collaboration with Professor Andrea Armani from USC, Orad will be co-chairing POM, the Photonics Online Meetup. The plan is to reduce the family burden of conference travel, reduce the carbon footprint and cost of participating in conferences, and make conferences more open and accessible to everyone. This project has been a joint collaboration with researchers from around the world — the organizing committee includes Igor Aharonovich from UT Sydney, Mikhail Kats from University of Wisconsin-Madison, Rachel Grange from ETH Zurich, Riccardo Sapienza from Imperial College London, and Sylvain Gigan from Sorbonne Universite.
