SPH Student Presents His Work at the 12th International Symposium on Modern Optics and Its Applications

Jason Ken Adhinarta, a student from SPH Lippo Village who joined the Applied Science Academy program, presents his science poster at the 12th International Symposium on Modern Optics and Its Applications (ISMOA).

ISMOA is a meeting held by the Indonesian Optical Society (InOS). Held at July 1-4, 2019, the 12th ISMOA is organized in collaboration with the Department of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering & Computer Science, Krida Wacana Christian University (UKRIDA) located in the West of Jakarta.

Accompanied by his mentor, Mr. Eden Steven, Ph. D, Jason presents his research work titled “Light Storage and Thermal-Assisted-Switching of Strontium Aluminate Phosphors”. Many senior scientists are intrigued by Jason’s work and he receives great support from the community, as we can see from what Mr. Eden said in his testimony:

“I am incredibly blessed to experience the poster presentation by our SPH Applied Science Academy student and research intern at Emmerich Education Center, Jason Ken Adhinarta who received great support and positive encouragement from the community of Modern Optics experts at 12th International Symposium on Modern Optics and its Application 2019! It is also very refreshing to see how the experts in the field care about the next young generations of scientists.”

Jason, who will be in Grade 11 in this new Academic Year, also shares his once in a lifetime experience at this international conference:

“I was confident in my scientific thinking and understanding, especially with my Applied Science Academy project being a success. Well, that was before I participated in ISMOA. In this symposium, I listen to lectures back-to-back, being exposed to mathematical equations explaining optical phenomena which I won’t comprehend any time soon, and I feel that I have much more to learn. This valuable experience amplifies the long path ahead for me as a life-long learner.”

It is impressive to witness such depth of knowledge and hard work of an eleventh grader. We are excited to see how our Applied Science Academy can produce many potential young scientists who will bring redemptive restoration in the future.
