Project Description

“The Universe of Light” is a project created by the researchers of the Center for Optics and Quantum Information (COIC), currently members of the Center for Optics and Photonics (CEFOP), supported by the Explora CONICYT and the Millennium Science Initiative. This is an exhibition of 19 experiments related to the study, behavior, properties and technological applications of light, designed to be portable and easily managed by the public.

For the design of the exhibition, the researchers of CEFOP work in collaboration of the Design School of the Professional Institute Duoc UC. Through the career of Graphic Design, Industrial Design and Design Environments, generated proposals where the luminous phenomena were protagonists. However, the proper functioning of the experiments was achieved through the work of a multidisciplinary team, where scientists checked every detail and monitored that the phenomena of light would be clearly seen.

“The Universe of Light” has toured around 24 cities of the country, staying about 30 days in each place. His schedule of visits is organized by CEFOP and the Explora Program of CONICYT, who through their regional coordinators program the schedule of visits.
