What is Day of Photonics? and why do we celebrate it?

On 21 October 1983, the General Conference of Weights and Measures adopted the value of 299,792.458 km/s for the speed of light.

In honor of this occasion, we celebrate the International Day of Photonics on October 21st every year. This year we at HÜBNER Photonics are very excited to be hosting a photonics and lasers inspiration evening for students at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, the 17th of November. We hope we can ignite sparks of inspiration for future researchers, as we continue our journey into the photonics industry of tomorrow.
