  • Brief description

    Optical technologies have taken a strong place in modern human life. Telecommunications, medicine and biology, science and data processing, AR/VR technologies and quantum cryptography are all developed with modern optics. The summer school course PolyPhotonics opens a magnificent world of photonics and its applications for students. During one week you will be able to take a theoretical course of lectures by the best world experts, supported by a number of master classes. The acquired knowledge will be needed to implement your own telecommunications, biophotonics or fiber optics project during your summer school studies. Presentation of your original project will be a part of the YETI-2020 conference and will complete your training.

Duration: 10 days

ECTS credits: 3.0

Participation fee: 24 480 RUB

Upon successful completion of the course students will receive hard copies of certificates with ECTS credits (mailed by post in case of the online format of the Summer School).

Deadline for registration: June 20, 2022

  • Course description
    • PolyPhotonics Summer School is a new program implemented by the Higher School of Applied Physics and Space Technologies. The six-day program comprises three main components: optics in telecommunications technology, fiber optics and biomedical optics. Each track consists of lectures by the world's leading scientists and visual demonstrations in laboratories of Higher School of Applied Physics and Space Technologies. Classes will also be held on modern developments in optical technologies, artificial intelligence for image processing, quantum cryptography and virtual reality.
    • Within the school, students will have the opportunity to develop their own project under the guidance of specialists in telecommunications, biophotonics and fiber optics. The development of the project will consist of both the theoretical part (the schematic part and the corresponding calculations), and the practical part where students can assemble and test their own device.
