SPIE and OSA student chapters

Welcome to the Lund University SPIE  and OSA Student Chapters!

Our aim is to raise the knowledge of Photonics among our student members at Lund University through professional lectures, science fairs, lab tours and networking to the industry.  

We provide a link between students and the research groups at the department by regular talks, social events and information. We give students (PhD-students, master students and undergraduates) unique possibilities to reach outside Lund University and network in the international research community through conference grants and invited lecturers from all over the world.

In the menu bar to the left you can find information about events, how to join the chapters and more. Do you want to get involved?

Video Competition

We would like to hold an open video competition with two categories; General Optics/Photonics (for a public audience) and Optics/Photonics Research (for an academic audience).

  •  The General Optics/Photonics video should be a 2-3 minute video which explains a particular optics or photonics theory or technology for a non-academic audience.
  • The Optics/Photonics Research video should be a short 2-3 minute video which presents a current optics and photonics research project with a target academic audience.

The General Optics/Photonics video category is designed to be accessible to people of all ages and educational levels.  This category is aimed at developing videos to increase the knowledge and spread interest in the fields of optics and photonics.  Example topics could include; ‘Why the sky is blue’, ‘How rainbows are formed’ or ‘How light emitting diodes work’.

The Optics/Photonics Research video category is designed to present academic level research in an alternative medium to articles and theses.  The category is aimed encouraging people to present research topics in a concise, dynamic and informative way.   

The video should be:

  • Original work
  • 2-3 minutes in duration
  • In English (or Swedish - General Optics/Photonics video only).
  • Resolution of at least 1280x720 (720p HD) and it should be readable by VLC.
  • Submitted either as an email attachment or Dropbox folder or other online drive with a shared link to


Deadline for entries:
