The Series brings leading minds in all areas relevant to the science of light to Erlangen. It presents the unique opportunity for scientific exchange with the speakers to a broad audience.

The topics range from ultrafast measurements over a blueprint for a quantum internet to frequency combs for extremely large telescopes. 

All lectures will start at 15.00 CET and will be transmitted via stream. If you would like to attend, please register here for our DLS newsletter. You will then receive the link for the zoom conference by e-mail shortly before the presentation.
