|Dr. Elmo Tempel|
Professor of Astronomy, member of the Estonian Academy of Sciences
He is a member of the 4MOST consortium (https://www.4most.eu/), which operates the next-generation fibre-fed spectroscopic telescope that will provide the most complete and accurate coverage of the southern sky in the coming years. In the summer school, we will hear about the capabilities of the new telescope and the consortium’s science goals.

|Dr. Andreas Valdmann|
Co-founder and System Architect at LightCode Photonics,
He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Tartu, Estonia in 2019. After which he together with people from Physical Optics Laboratory in University of Tartu started LighCode Photonics which is a science-intensive deep tech company developing breakthrough technology for mobility. They are rethinking image acquisition and solving 3D imaging in a completely new way - via intelligent perception. LightCode Photonics is transforming 3D imaging from human-like perception to robotic vision - we are building the world's first Software-Defined 3D Camera (SD3D Camera). Their approach enables them to empower the existing sensors with software-defined capability and provide Lidar performance using accessible COTS components at an affordable cost.
| Dr. Praveen. P. A|
Post Doc Fellow in CIPHR team
MSc in material science, Optics researcher at Click and Grow/Program manager of the master's program in physics
Click & Grow is a leading company in creating home and indoor gardening solutions. His job is to develop lighting solutions for products: create a test methodology for potential LEDs used in products, explore ways to reduce light pollution with innovative optical details, which in turn would increase lamp efficiency, and test the effects of different spectral wavelengths on plant growth. In the summer school he will talk about efficient lighting solutions for plant growing equipment.

light-matter interactions. For example, it is a promising method for designing new type of laser like light sources through the process of non-equilibrium Bose-Einstein condensation (BEC), to control and to direct photo-chemical reactions and to manipulate the molecular energy transfer processes beyond the distance set by the Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) etc. Although many application ideas exist, further understanding is needed for designing of such new and potentially useful systems.
Here I give a brief introduction on the application specific geometries for achieving strong coupling with molecular excitations and confined optical fields. I will also discuss our current activities and experimental and numerical simulation capabilities in the field at the Institute of Physics at the University of Tartu. The scientific focus of my research is the understanding of the role of the Stokes shift in the energy transfer processes and efficiency in polaritonic luminescence and light sources.
