Department Chair’s Welcome
I extend a special welcome to those who got admitted to our Honors Photonics program. On behalf of the entire Physics and Computer Science Department, I want to congratulate you on your choice of Honors Photonics program. The Laurier Photonics program, the only one of its kind in Canada, will expose students to the breadth of knowledge in the field of Photonics, and equip them with the skills to conduct research in the field. The interdisciplinary program includes courses in physics, -and computer science with hands-on projects in electronics, lasers, and interdisciplinary design. Our faculty members have a strong background in optics and photonics with active research programs in a variety of topics such as Nanoscience, Optical Sensing, Quantum Computing, Metamaterials, Automation of Photonics Experiments and Optical Networks.
Heqing Hoang, fourth year Photonics 2+2 program student from China was awarded a grant in May 2014,for her research titled "Aminoacid interaction with rare earth elements".
