Notre Dame Symposium on Electronics and Photonics

We are pleased to announce the University of Notre Dame Symposium on Electronics and Photonics:

Thursday, October 22
12:30 - 5:00pm
310 Jordan Hall

The symposium is an excellent opportunity for researchers to share their latest results and to learn about research in the local community. Contributed talks will be 10 minutes long with 2 minutes for questions. Student presenters will be considered for Best Presentations, with cash prizes totaling $900. The topics for this year's symposium include:

  • Electronic devices
  • Photonic devices and integration
  • Low-dimensional systems and 2D crystals
  • Applied photonics and biophotonics
  • Nanomagnetics
  • Other topics in electronics and photonics

Abstract submission is now closed
