Second prize poster award for Mark Turner

Monday December 7 2009

Congratulations to Mark Turner for being awarded second place at the Koala conference poster awards. Mark was one vote from first place with his poster entitled "3D Chiral Metamaterials" at the student run, student attended conference.

The Koala (Konference on Optics And Laser Applications) conference is a student run week long event where students from across Australia and New Zealand meet to discuss their research, network with other students and practice valuable communication skills to people that may be outside their research area, all in a fun and social environment.

Mark was among more than twenty other students presenting posters and managed to present an engaging discussion on the used and properties of 3D chiral meta materials. The award was sponsored by AFW Technologies who specialise in fibre optic and photonic products.
