On the 20th May we held an event in the Anatomy Museum at King’s College London to celebrate the UNESCO International Day of Light and World Metrology Day

Bringing together over 15 artists and scientists who work in light, we showcased holograms, nanoparticles, lasers, polarisation and projections.

Dr Jess Wade gave an inspiring talk explaining how light and art interlink and went on to talk about her research in LEDs and chirality. Dr James Millen finished the event by talking about how photons can ghost meaning that you can see things that aren’t actually there.

We would like to thank the artists and scientists who took part in this event (listed below) and also give special thanks to the Institute of Physics and Nature Photonics & Nature Physics for facilitating writing workshops for our students.
