The meeting started with our President’s speech. Patrik Rath once again confirmed that OSKar is based not only on common scientific interest, but also on a strong friendship between members. Scientific conferences, industry excursions and career fairs are going together with lasertag, barbeque and traditional Stammtisch. The next speaker, our Treasurer Philipp Brenner, made a financial report, showing his outstanding skills in fund management.

Then the election time has come. And if the President and Treasurer elections went smoothly (all those who came approved the extension of the term for Patrik and Philipp), then other positions were highly demanded, what made an atmosphere in the room to become tense. After several circles of voting, the renewed board was formed:

– President:   Patrik Rath
– Vice President:   Roman Szatkowski
– Treasurer:   Philipp Brenner
– Secretary:   Ralf Gao
– Public Relations & Publicity:   Daria Bezshlyakh
– Social Media & Outreach:   Aso Rehimzadegan
– Event coordinator:   Kovendhan Vijayan

The chapter can choose any one listed in the SPIE Lecturer directory (http://spie.org/x17373.xml) and contact them to get the possible dates for the Talk. Then, the chapter needs to inform the SPIE about the possible Talk and the approximate expenditure for the event. The SPIE reimburses for the travel and the hospitality of the speaker.

The SPIE Visiting Lecturer Talk was organized by the OSKar at KIT, Germany.

Date: 27th of October, 2014
Time: 6 – 9 pm
Place: Light Institute Technology (LTI) – KIT

Prof. Lorenzo Pavesi’s brilliance and sense of humor was evident from the start of the talk. The talk was primarily concentrated on Silicon photonics and Silicon Nano crystals, the advantages and disadvantages of the Silicon photonics and then how the disadvantages can be overcome. The talk lasted for about an hour and quarter. The interesting part of the talk was the questionnaire section. Prof. Lorenzo Pavesi was enthusiastic and had enough patience to answer all the questions which came from every part of the hall for about 45 minutes.

After quenching the thirst for knowledge, the real hunger was quenched with pizzas along with beers, juices, etc., The OSKar members had chances to interact personally with Prof. Pavesi during this party. OSKar likes to thank the SPIE for funding this event and is really proud that event was a grand success.
The efforts put up by the members of OSKar are highly appreciable. Looking forward for the other events this year!!!
