From the UBAPHODESA project's website:

The Applied Optics Group and the OSA student chapter of the University of Kent organised a small event for the international celebrated “Day of Photonics” on the 21st of October. The Day of Photonics celebrates the adoption of the current speed of light at the General Conference of Weights And Measures on the 21st of October 1983.

The Applied Optics and OSA student chapter organised a small booth in one of the universities science buildings, presenting various optical instruments and phenomena. They also offered guided lab tours to the photonics labs and gave an insight to the research carried out at the Applied Optics Grouop of the University of Kent.
We had the chance to meet with many interested students and give them an introduction to our research and gave them the opportunity to ask questions concerning optics and our research.
