Two events for the International Day of Light.
There are two events today to celebrate the international day of light. Both events are in the same lecture theatre.
Lecture: Light: A Transverse Wave.
6:30 PM to 9:00 PM (The lecture will start at 7:00, after refreshments are served at 6:30 PM)
Dr Garry Lester
The talk will introduce light as a transverse electromagnetic wave, a very very short wavelength radio wave. The direction of the electric field gives the light polarisation, something we know through polarising sunglasses and computer screens. Examples of polarised light in nature, science and technology will be presented and discussed.
This event is jointly organized with the IET.
Streamed Colloquium: LiFi Launch with Pure LiFi
Professor Harald Haas, Edinburgh University.
Professor Haas will speak about the journey of building a technology company in the UK starting from a few researchers in a lab to the growing scale-up it is today with more than 130 deployments across more than 24 countries. Haas will speak about the fundamental advantages of LiFi. He will illustrate a vision for LiFi and how this revolutionary light communications technology will transform the way the world connects and how it will enable other disruptive technologies and applications. Haas will share a few case studies of where LiFi is making a difference for industries and communities today.
The lecture will be streamed live from London.
