Catherine's images are being displayed by FNR at Place Auguste Laurent, Limpertsberg. Discover the beautiful science of Luxembourg at the FNR Science Image expo! Place Auguste Laurent, Limpertsberg.
Anjali's image got featured for FNR campaign "letzscience", raising awareness of Luxembourg research by blending science images with Augmented Reality (AR). Each image features a story with an example of Luxembourg research connected to the image.

Our group is officially hosting the 1st ever TEDx event at the University of Luxembourg! The date for the event was just announced to occur on
Oct. 26, 2018! While we cannot actually give talks ourselves on our projects and perspectives, there's still plenty of opportunities for others to get involved in suggesting speaker ideas, or in applying to speak themselves.

The Experimental Soft Matter Physics group will participate in the Luxembourg Science Festival
, during the sessions for school classes on Thursday 12th and Friday 13th of November. We will exhibit a show on polarized light and birefringence, and how observation between crossed polarizers can be used to reveal information about materials that is hidden to the naked eye, like where stresses build up and whether or not an anisotropic order exists on macroscopic scale.
We will be in the "Tente parvis", at workshop 38: "Lumière fantastique!".
We now have an official logo for our group.
We finally have something that succinctly shows what our very multidisciplinary group does in the labs, & studies, on a regular basis.
What do you think?
& thanks to our very own Larry H. for the great design!
Variations of the logo will be available for download by group members on the Internal Site soon.
A very simple and informative explanation of colours. Listen Manos Anyfas talking about the recent paper in a podcast called ''All Things Photonics’'. Manos’s part starts from 36:45.
