International Day of Light 2023

The International Day of Light is celebrated on May 16th each year, the anniversary of the first successful operation of the laser in 1960 by physicist and engineer Theodore Maiman. The International Day of Light was proclaimed at the General Conference of UNESCO in November 2017. The first celebration took place on May 16th, 2018. ELI Beamlines is proud to join this event again – this year, on May 20th!

A program will be available here at the beginning of April 2023.
