About us

SPIE is the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers and OSA is the Optical Society of America. These professional societies support interdisciplinary research in the field of optics and photonics. Within the scope of both societies student chapters all over the world are organized in order to bring together extraordinary young scientists, exchange ideas and advance the knowledge of optics.

SPIE Student Chapter of M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University was organized in July, 2002. Its mission lies in supporting the students, demonstrating outstanding results in the field of optics and laser physics.

Our student group organizes workshops and participates in popular events and science festivals with demonstrations and presentations. We visit local high schools to advance students' interest in physics and optics, and we send our members to affiliated professional conferences. The membership in SPIE Student Chapter offers the challenge in relations with specialists in optics all over the world, useful contacts with the members of SPIE Student Chapters from various Universities of different countries, access to the scientific literature including online jounals.

Finally, the most successfull students can receive the financial support from SPIE - student scholarships and grants for payment of the travels to the SPIE sponsored events.
