The lead picture in this month’s issue displays the winner of the OPN 2018 After Image photo contest. I encourage you to click the link to the website and view all ten of the finalist images. Copies of the new Fundamentals of Light and Lasers, 3rd Edition, have been mailed to the OPCN faculty members who are teaching from this text. If you have not received a copy, and are interested, please request a pdf version from the OP-TEC store. OPCN members can begin planning to attend the CREOL Industrial Affiliates Symposium in Orlando, March 13-15, 2019. From all the staff at OP-TEC, I wish you a joyful and memorable holiday season!
