OP-TEC Newsletter – October 2017

Congratulations to three OPCN colleges that received NSF/ATE projects in 2017:

Click the project titles above to learn more information about these grants. If your college would like to apply for an NSF or technical society grant in this coming year, OPCN coordinators are welcome to request advice and assistance from Gordon Snyder, Greg Kepner, Chrys Panayiotou or me. Mentor-Connect is another organization funded by NSF/ATE to assist colleges in preparing and submitting NSF/ATE grants.

We were greatly relieved that the Puerto Rico Photonics Institute survived Hurricane Maria and is reopening classes. Read more about their situation and needs in the PRPI article below.

All of us benefit greatly from professional development and technical updates but time and resources prevent us from the travel that is frequently required. One of the most effective and efficient strategies for receiving updates is through online webinars. An excellent example is the OSA webinar on developments and applications of high power fiber lasers described in the article below. The slides and an archived video of the presentation are linked in the article.
