Have you ever wondered what the inside of a research lab looks like and how the scientists, researchers and engineers conduct experiments?

Come join the virtual lab tour event! Eight scientists from around the world will provide a tour of their lab through prerecorded video showing off their equipment, describing their experimental setup and automation techniques, and showing how they fabricate fibers and photonic devices. The demonstrations will be followed by an interactive Q/A session.
