The Day of Photonics is an annual event celebrated on the 21st October to increase awareness of photonics to the general public and especially school children. We usually invite local class groups into our factory for an educational tour but in this COVID year we have decided to make an educational video instead and send to local schools.

Our educational video (in Swedish) is intended to give students a glimse into the photonics world by helping them understand what lasers are and how they are used in real life. We also show what kind of jobs the students could have if they work for a laser company.

We hope we can inspire some young minds to study photonics in the future.

Happy Day of Photonics!
