NanoPhotonics Christmas Party

16 December 2021

Many thanks to Chris and Jeremy for organising a very nice Christmas dinner at Jesus College. It was good to be able to see everyone again. Now we just need to figure out who gave which present to who :) Christmas_dinner_2021_2 Christmas_dinner_2021_3
