86. Nano Photonics Lab 2019 Homecoming Day

posted Jun 13, 2019, 12:19 AM by Nano Photonics Lab KAIST   [ updated Jun 13, 2019, 12:25 AM ]

On May 18th 2019 Nano Photonics Lab organized homecoming day. In this event, all of the lab alumni, along with their families,
were invited to spend a day together with Prof. Yong-Hee Lee and the current members of Nano Photonics Lab.
In this joyful day, we reconnected with each other through various events which were prepared by the current lab members, such as bingo,
Korean BBQ dinner, and finally drinking together at a local pub(The Ranch Pub). We also celebrated the Teacher's day for Prof. Yong-Hee Lee.
Here are some pictures taken during the event.
