Photonics: Revolutionising our World


Science Museum | Exhibition Road (link Map)
London | SW7 2DD | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: FREE
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

The Knowledge Transfer Network together with UCL and NPL is excited to mark the launch of Photonics: Revolutionising our World magazine.

Come to our event to see how photonics is rooted into many aspects of our lives. Did you know the typical car contains at least 30% of photonics based technologies? A mobile phone uses at least three lasers in operation, again an example of everyday applications for photonics. This event provides the opportunity for anyone to experience, experiment and play with photonics in an exciting, hands-on way.

We hope you will go away well fed and heavily laden with a goodie bag and magazine but most importantly with new ideas and an improved knowledge and appreciation of photonics..
