8th Annual STEM Conference

October 24, 2020
08:30 AM - 05:30 PM

The 8th Annual Texas STEM conference will present breakout sessions from various STEM fields including Biology, Computer Science, Chemistry, Engineering, Mathematics, and Physics. 

This year's keynote speaker is Dr. Benjamin Webb, Laser Scientist at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics of the University of Rochester, NY. Dr. Webb, a Lamar alumnus, will speak about The Next Generation of Petawatt Laser Technology.

Dr. Benjamin Webb received his BS degree in Electrical Engineering from Lamar University in 2009. He then joined the Laser and Plasma Laboratory in the College of Optics and Photonics (CREOL) at the University of Central Florida, where he completed his MS (2011) and PhD (2016). He has since worked at the Laboratory for Laser Energetics (LLE) for 4 years as a research associate and scientist. His research has been focused on developing high-power femtosecond laser systems based on chirped-pulse amplification, coherent combination, and other novel techniques. Currently, Dr. Webb is leading a team to complete a 0.5 PW laser system that demonstrates scalable technologies for a proposed record-breaking multi-beam 25 PW laser system.

Registration for this event is free.

Sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Research. Abstracts are being accepted through October 16th for undergraduate and graduate level research in all areas of STEM. Visit OUR website to make a submission.
