The lead pictures in this issue remind us of the rapidly emerging market of wearable fibers, and the essential applications of optics and photonics to this field. Downloading and reading the referenced article is worthwhile. Another interesting scientific breakthrough is Lightcone Transform (LCT) Reconstruction which enables non-line-of-sight (NLOS) imaging in LIDAR systems, so that they can “see around corners.” The articles by MPEC and LASER-TEC provide excellent strategies for outreach and student recruitment. Strategic, focused recruitment efforts are critical to maintaining high student enrollments in existing photonics technician education programs. OP-TEC’s Using Current Photonics Students to Recruit New Students monograph describes the use of current students for outreach and recruitment. I recommend that faculty review the power point slides of figures used in OP-TEC student textbooks, Quality Assurance of Precision Optics and Metrology of Optical Systems. Some of these figures are also useful in other photonics courses. Please plan to attend the HI-TEC Conference, which will be held in Miami FL, July 23-26. OPCN meetings and tours will be held July 23-24. OP-TEC is an Executive Sponsor, and receives registrations which we will provide, along with travel reimbursements, to OPCN coordinators.
