Max Planck - uOttawa Centre for Extreme and Quantum Photonics
Since 2012 uOttawa and the Max Planck Institute for the Science of light have been cultivating strong research collaboration with each other through student and staff exchanges, international workshops and collaborative research projects.
The University of Ottawa is proud to announce a formal partnership with the Max Planck Society that will establish the Max Planck-University of Ottawa Centre for Extreme and Quantum Photonics. The centre will link two of the world's foremost research teams in the field of photonics and be only the third Max Planck Centre in North America.
The Schawlow-Townes Symposium on Photonics is named in honour of Charles H. Townes and the late Arthur L. Schawlow, pioneers in laser technology. Since 2012 this annual symposium aims to bring to light the research and discoveries of photonics experts from across Canada and from around the world.
Open to all MPC participants, this workshop will serve as a forum to share the most recent research developments of all collaborative projects under the MPC, as well as a platform to develop new collaborative research projects
