ANP Retreat 2014: Tecklenburg

On Thursday and Friday June 19 & 20, 2014, Applied Nanophotonics retreated in the middeleval town of Tecklenburg, Germany. The about 75 participants from COPS, LPNO, NBP and OS and guests form neighbouring UT groups, followed a program emphasizing scientific discussion and interaction of various topics along the research interests of the groups. Highlights were the talks from our external guests: Cornelia Denz from the WWU and Wilbert IJzerman from Philips.
