Online lectures will be delivered synchronized as live talk with professors and groupmates. Records of classes will be available on SPbPU platform for 1 month after the course end.
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.
ECTS credits: 3.0
Participation fee: 10 700 Rubles
Upon successful completion of the course students will receive hard copies of certificates with ECTS credits mailed by post.
There are five scholarships available. To get scholarship students should prepare the motivation letter and send it to the program supervisors via email (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com) before July 01, 2020.
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.
School participants will be able to attend all presentations, plenary lectures, poster sessions and a round table organized within the framework of the "International Youth Conference on Electronics, Telecommunications and Information Technology" (YETI-2020). It is also possible for the participants of the school to publish the results of their work in a special issue of the conference proceedings free of charge. To do this, please use the conference website for real-time presentations and indicate in your letter that you are a participant of PolyPhotinics school.
