Students Competition

SBFoton 2021 Student Paper Competition is organized by SBFoton and financially supported by IEEE Photonics Society. It has been created to: provide graduate students attending SBFoton 2021 with an engaging challenge to embrace; motivate and increase the number of students enrolled in scientific R&D activities related to Optics and Photonics; give students an opportunity to sharpen their communication skills; provide feedback to students about their research and presentation from a panel of distinguished judges from research centers, industry and academia; and recognize and reward outstanding graduate student research.




The Brazilian Photonics Society has begun its activities on May 24th, 2017 with the main objective to work for increasing the importance and awareness of optics and photonics in Brazil and South America.
