Siegman International School on Lasers
The Siegman International School is a week-long program that exposes students to in-depth learning of lasers and their applications from internationally recognized academic and industry leaders in the field. The scope includes all aspects of lasers and photonics. The Siegman International School on Lasers invites up to 100 graduate students for a week-long program to learn from pioneering laser researchers and experts from leading laser companies, highly-regarded professors and fellow students. Attendees are asked to present their own research, which provides invaluable experience in building exposure for their work.
The school was established in honor of Anthony E. Siegman, 1999 OSA President, founding board member of The OSA Foundation and widely known expert on lasers and optics. This program is co-founded by IPG Photonics and endowed by donors from around the world.
The 2018 Siegman International School
took place 29 July - 4 August and was hosted by the Technical University Denmark. The school was held on the beautiful Island of Hven, Backafallsbyn, Sweden. Applications for the 2019 school hosted by the University of Rochester will open in late 2018.
