First of all: happy new year and best wishes for everyone.
Secondly: Some of you have requested that I share with you the details of my phd defense. So, since something like a week ago, I have the necessary details for you:
On friday the 22nd of january at 4 pm, I will publicly defend my PhD at the University of Antwerp, Campus Drie Eiken, Building S, room 0.01. (https://www.google.be/maps/place/Morfologie,+2610+Antwerpenfirstname.lastname@example.org,4.4053304,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x47c3f0dff8083c0f:0x623304cee178f9f2<span style=”color: black; font-family: Calibri, sans-serif; line-height: 1.42857;”> </span>) (best places to park are P3 or P4, If your comming by train or bus, get out in Antwerp central station and take bus 17. (Yes, Berchem station is closer, but then you have to take 2 busses: 21 and then 17)).
The defense is public, so anyone and everyone can come by and watch it. Be warned, it will be in Dutch. The topic is my research on theoretical physics: The scattering of light at nanoparticles and nanofilms, the expansions of standard scattering theory to include soft boundaries and longitudinal electronic respons. I will talk about light as an electromagnetic wave and how we calculate the EM field when it hits a nanoscopic, metalic particle. Then I will probably explain what is missing in the current calculations and how I implemented these missing features. Finally, I will conclude with a calculation demonstrating the effects of soft boundaries, one of the missing features I implemented.
The defense will consist of a 30 min presentation by myself, followed by questions from the jury and then questions from the audience. I will organise a small reception to celebrate the (hopefully) positive outcome. If you are going to come, please let me know, so that I can make a good estimate of the numbers of people present.
Fingers crossed for you X^__^X
I’m sure it will go well, we’ll treat a beer to celebrate : )
Sadly, I’m afraid it will be impossible for me to come as I have a meeting day/training preparation that day. Still, It might end quickly, but usually, it never does… ; )
Live & Learn
To bad you couldn’t be there. It was a wonderfull display of Blender goodness 🙂
And I did get my PhD by the way. So all good. Now I am looking for a job.
