Polaritonics Seminar Series

The Polaritonics Seminar Series aims to showcase the best research activities of the global polaritonics community. The seminar series is organized by the University of Southampton 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.
