QCQT PhD students can apply once a year for a travel support for the attendance of a conference or research stay abroad.
The 27th International conference on Raman Spectroscopy (ICORS) took place in Long Beach (California) from August 14 to August 19 2022. The conference had the aim to bring together researchers from different fields to discuss the most recent progress and ideas in Raman spectroscopy.
As a PhD student, working on the implementation of an ultrafast Raman spectroscopy setup, this conference was particularly fruitful. The wide offer of both theoretical and experimental talks, allowed me to learn more about various aspects of this field. I had many opportunities to engage with different researchers on an international scale, from lunch breaks to the poster sessions. Regarding the latter, I had the chance to present my work on one of the conference poster sessions. I enjoyed many stimulating discussions about some challenges I am facing in my work. Those interactions were very beneficial since I had the opportunity to talk with researchers who are working on similar subjects.
Beyond the certainly fruitful scientific aspect, it was also very fun to attend to one of the conference social activities: the whale watching. It was really exciting to see whales for the first time in my life.
Finally, I would like to thank my professor Ilaria Zardo for giving me the opportunity to participate to this conference and all the founding that supported me, in particular the QCQT (Quantum Computer and Quantum Technology) school of the University of Basel.
