The UA presents an exhibition on holograms and posters in the celebration of the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies
Sergi Gallego presenting during the exhibition: Holograms and posters
Alicante, 10 February 2015
The hologram technique was first introduced in Spain by the University of Alicante. The first hologram in our country was produced at the UA, at the end of the 1960s, by lecturer José Antonio Quintana, in the Optics Lab. In the celebration of the International Year of Light and Light-based Technologies, the UA Polytechnic School is exhibiting now and until 28 February the nine holograms produced at the UA in 1984 on the treasures of Villena by lecturer Quintana, which have been passed on by the UA Museum. Here one can witness firsthand the ability of this technique to create three-dimensional images based on the use of light. Attendees can also see the traveling exhibition: 2015: International Year of Light,which begins this morning at the UA Polytechnic School. Thirteen posters describe the leading role of light and its technologies in various fields is highlighted, as well as its impact on both science and everyday quality of life. This gives us an idea of the relevance of light in different areas such as medicine, architecture, arts, robotics, energy, communications, relativity and quantum physics, astronomy and holography. The celebration is completed with a lecture series promoted by the Alicante Section of the Spanish Physics Society along with other associations and institutions that will be distributed throughout the year, from February to November at both the UA's and UMH's premises.
Also, the UA lecture building II will host the Instant Banking Hack Day, where many of the 152 enrolled students will be given a training session before their participation in the competition on API, wearables, business models, group dynamics and communication of ideas. According to the organisers, this second innovation marathon, focussed on the generation of groundbreaking ideas in digital banking, has far exceeded expectations.
