OP-TEC Newsletter – February 2018

This newsletter emphasizes the rapidly emerging innovations and applications of optics and photonics. The first graphic illustrates how an optogenetic device can control the actions of small insect, to be operated as a drone. The following article summarizes how advancements in untrafast (very high-powered) lasers have enabled new scientific and medical applications, leading to improved economic development.

A recent meeting of faculty, employers and photonics technicians at the Photonics West Conference featured presentations on development of integrated photonics. Also highlighted, is an article about the release of a new brochure by the OSA Industry Development Associates summarizing the economic impact of eight application areas of photonics.
 
All of these news items reassure us that the photonics technicians being educated and trained by OPCN colleges will have opportunities to experience rewarding careers in this interesting and widely expanding field.
