Optical Trapping Summer School 2018

The Optical Trapping Summer School 2018 (OTS2-2018) will be hosted by the Physics Department of the University of Gothenburg from 29 May to 1 June 2018. It will give an overview of optical trapping and optical manipulation, from the fundamentals to state-of-the-art applications.
The school will provide a highly interactive environment with lectures, experimental sections, active involvement of participants and networking, in the spirit of a workshop or symposium.

The school is addressed to master students, PhD students, postdocs and researchers with some experience or interest in optical trapping related phenomena and interested in deepening their knowledge of fundamentals and current applications of this technique.
