The Universe of Light


“The Universe of Light” is an outreach activity developed since 2007 by the scientists of the Quantum Optics and Quantum Information Center, now members of CEFOP. This interactive and travelling exposition was created to approach the Chilean population to physics and optics phenomena’s through a playful and surprising way.   With nineteen experiments, related to the fundamental properties of light and its technologies applications, the exposition has captured the attention of over one hundred thousand people in twenty of the mains cities of Chile. After this success the exposition has been one of the main activities of scientific dissemination in the country, accomplishing our vision of taking science even to the most remote places of our country, such as San Pedro de Atacama, up north, and Chiloé in the southern region.
