Evolution of Photonics Education at the Australian National University
Author(s): John Love

Paper Abstract

This paper tracks the evolution of photonics education and training at the Australian National University (ANU) from its tentative beginnings in 1971 in the doctoral and masters postgraduate research arena and in 1989 in the undergraduate teaching arena through to its substantive role in 2009 and onwards. In addition it addresses various offshoots to national and international outreach activities and support for emerging photonics qualifications at other institutions, as well as photonics conference evolution.
