Past Seminars

Jean-luc Doumont - "Getting the Message Across" (April 4, 2018)

Dr. Maryellen L. Giger (January 17, 2018)

SPIE President Maryellen Giger visited our campus to present her recent research and meet with SPIE student board members. 

Dr. Kirill V. Larin (April 19, 2017)

 Dr. Mahesh Neupane (June 16, 2015)

Alumni and former Chapter member Mahesh Neupane gave a talk about some of the ongoing projects at the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in Baltimore, MD.


Alson E. Hatheway (May 27, 2015)

The Chapter invited Mr. Alson E. Hatheway to our campus to deliver a lecture on optomechanics. We got a lot of interesting insights into optomechanical design and entrepreneurship.

Dr. Hyle Park (Dec 3, 2014)

Dr. Hyle Park delivered an excellent talk title “Development of label-free optical imaging of neural activity’. His talked introduced students to non-invasive imaging of neural activity in the brain at cellular resolution. Using a combination of OCT-derived measures of changes in local attenuation coefficient and optical phase, his lab has been able to directly detect neural activity with micrometer 3D spatial resolution on a millisecond time scale.


Dr. David Giltner (April 15, 2014)

The title of Dr. Giltner’s talk was “Can a Scientist Find a Rewarding Career in Industry”. This talk exposed attendees to the unique opportunities present for optics and photonics-related technology in the industry.
