Public symposium - Sunday, 18 September 2011, 14:30 - 17:30
The conference comes to Geneva exactly 170 years after Jean-Daniel Colladon’s first demonstration of light guiding in a water jet at the Academy of Science, now the University of Geneva. This anniversary will be celebrated in a series of public lectures in the afternoon of Sunday, Sept. 18th on “Milestones in Light Guiding” featuring talks on Colladon (Jeff Hecht, USA), first fabrication of glass fibres (Don Keck, USA), fibre amplifiers (David Payne, UK), and photonic crystal fibers (Philipp Russell, Germany).
A working demonstration model of the “Colladon fountain” will be shown during the conference in the entrance hall to the lecture room at the Palexpo conference center in Geneva.
A second public event will address the evolution of cryptography: A talk on “The science of secrecy” will be given by Simon Singh (UK). This talk will feature the demonstration of a genuine World War II “Enigma”.
