International Day of Light 2021
The International Day of Light is a global initiative that provides an annual focal point for the continued appreciation of light and the role it plays in science, culture and art, education, and sustainable development, and in fields as diverse as medicine, communications, and energy. The broad theme of light will allow many different sectors of society worldwide to participate in activities that demonstrates how science, technology, art and culture can help achieve the goals of UNESCO – education, equality, and peace.
An extremely interesting brochure for this years’ international day of light IDL2021 has been created by the Aston team, focused on the main topic on how is light being used to provide innovative technological solutions? There is currently fantastic research being performed in various EC projects coordinated by the Aston Institute of Photonics Technologies (AIPT) including WON. The brochure has contributions by Elliot London, Bruno Correia, Rasoul Sadeghi, Rafael Kraemer, Yu Wang, Gabriele Di Rosa and Thyago Monteiro, and many others!
