About us

We are a group of undergraduate and graduate students of the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil, promoting Optics and Photonics in the region of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

 

 

 

We benefit from the support of two non-profit organisations, namely, the OSA (Optical Society of America) and SPIE (the International Society for Optics and Photonics). For more informations please visit their oficial websites:
