“The magic of light!” - An entertaining optics and photonics awareness program

Open Access Open Access


Illusionism provides a surprising and unforgettable way of explaining photonics to a wide audience. Imagine grabbing with your own hand an egg-sized photon with the same incredible properties as in a quantum computer! And what about touching the light beam which detects and removes diseased cells like in cutting edge medical prototypes? The art of magic allows promoting photonics, exploring advanced subjects in an understandable and palpable fashion that strongly inspires all ages.
