DAY OF PHOTONICS is an annual event on October 21st that promotes “photonics” towards the general public. The project COMANDER organized an open day at AUTH premises in order to promote photonic technologies and broadcast the objectives and outcomes of the COMANDER project. The event attended undergraduate and graduate students in computer science and engineering as well as IT researchers who had the opportunity to listen about this emerging key enabling technology that will ultimately have the same impact on society as the electronics industry. COMANDER was also presented as an ongoing project that exploits photonics combined with wireless technology to enhance accessibility to multi-Gb/s communications. Some pictures follow:
