Outreach & Public engagement


ESRs outreach activities that create awareness of their research work among the general public.


  • ESR Irene Sánchez Arribas presenting Save the Astronaut at UKON's Physics Day

  • ESR Edouard Ivanov explaining the principles of a simple optomechanical experiment at “Fête de la science” at Sorbonne Université

  • ESR Khannan Rajendran demonstrating IR Spectroscopy: Pulse oximeter (under demonstration in the background). Raman : Beer analyser (on table). Visible : Grating-dispersion setup (on the right)

  • ESR Mohammad Bereyhi demnonstrating tuning forks at Nuits de la Science

  • ESR Tirth Shah demonstrating laser sword soccer at MPL day

  • ESR Paolo Piergentili UNICAM lab tour

  • Save the Astronaut at UKON Long Nights of Science

  • ESR Giuseppe Modica CNRS-C2N lab tour

  • ESR Mohammad Bereyhi ranked 3rd in the FameLab Switzerland competition

  • ESR Irene Sánchez Arribas, International Women's day addressing gender inequality in STEM fields at IES Padre Manjón (Granada, Spain)

  • ESR Mohamed Ashour explaining to German high school students how to measure photonic integrated circuits

  • ESR Alberto Beccari giving a tour to high school students of the Optomechanics laboratory at EPFL

  • ESR Edouard Ivanov giving a talk on Gravitational Waves at the “Palais de la Découverte”

  • ESR Irene Sánchez Arribas as co-organizer of the I, Scientist 2020 conference highlighting awareness of gender imbalance in STEM fields

  • ESR Tirth Shah assisted in developing a cavity optomechanics simulator website (http://www.cavity-optomechanics.org) that contains a user-interface allowing to simulate optomechanical equations of motion and generate interesting plots to visualise the rich dynamics of the optomechanical system.


The Journey of Optomechanical Technologies: A PhD training experience


Watch our OMT fellows talk about their research on optomechanical technologies and what they accomplished in the Marie Curie-Skłodowska European Training Network (ETN).
