Laser Swords at Max Planck Day

On September 14th MPL, along with all other Max Planck Institutes, opened its doors to the general public. Some 700 visitors from Erlangen and the surrounding area came to the event, curious to find out about our research – and not least to inspect the new MPL building! By all accounts they greatly enjoyed their visit. More than 40 MPL scientists took part, offering laboratory tours and giving lectures on recent research to a packed auditorium. In addition, several live table-top experiments such as a “laser sword football competition” and a “laser telephone” illustrated to young and old the fascinating science and technology of light.
