As the spring season of 2016 has finally arrived, Nano Photonics Lab members welcomed the warm and cherry blossoms season by throwing a strawberry party. This unique festival has been a special tradition within KAIST community during the early spring season each year. We arranged a picnic together and bought foods for lunch, such as pizzas, gimbabs (김밥), and the most important element for the party itself, strawberries. After lunch, we also played catching ball together on the open field shortly.

Welcome spring!

Nano Photonics Lab members returned again to the Deogyusan Ski Resort for winter 2016 MT. We spent 3 days 2 nights at the ski resort from Jan 31st to Feb 2nd. In total 10 members participated, whom 4 of us were skiing, 4 were snowboarding, and the other 2 were hiking. Aside from skiing activity, during the MT we cooked our meal together and played board game together. It was a fun and pleasant experience. Looking forward for the next MT.
