“We have the training of specialists in laser physics going actively in our university that is why I decided to try and participate in an Olympiad dedicated to this branch of knowledge. I really liked Olympiad tasks for they were quiet tricky and not easy to solve. I would like to emphasize the optical coding task and its author”, said Nikolay Petrov, a student of Lomonosov Moscow State University, the Department of General Physics and Wave Processes, the winner of the Olympiad.
We kindly invite University students to participate in the 2018 All-Russian Student Olympiad in the field of “Physics of Laser and Plasma Technologies”.
