Polaritonics Seminar Series

The Polaritonics Seminar Series aims to showcase the best research activities of the global polaritonics community. The seminar series is organized jointly by the University of Southampton and Skoltech on a bi-monthly basis and hosted online. All seminars are public and opened to the broader scientific community. Seminars typically last 45 mins, followed by an extensive Q&A session.
