This Symposium in honor of Eric Mazur aims to bring together a diverse collection of scientists and educators whose career paths have intersected with Eric’s and who share the passion Eric has for science, education and innovation. On the scientific side, the shared focus is the use of light to elucidate complex phenomena in materials while emphasizing the intuitive approach that has often characterized Eric’s contributions to the field. On the educational front, the common thread is the use of innovative approaches to engage curious minds and to train the next generation of scientists and innovators. This event is co-sponsored by the MRSECs at several Universities across the country and is being held in the Jefferson Physical Laboratory at Harvard University on November 15, 2014.
