October 30, 2015: Prof. V. Shalaev received Honorary Doctorate from University of Southern Denmark. The picture below shows a snapshot of the award ceremony.

October 2015: A workshop Quantum control of light and matter has taken place October 14-15, 2015, at Purdue Discovery Park. It marked coming into existence of Purdue Quantum Center and featured world-class experts in the fields of quantum physics and photonics.

The pictures below show: I) invited speakers of the Workshop joined by Purdue Faculty members, ii) younger participants of the Workshop, including members of Prof. V. Shalaev's research group, whose enthusiasm and hard work were integral ingredients of the Workshop's success (click on a pic to view its larger version).
