Webinar Programs

The Optical Society invites you to join a webcast devoted to U.S. National Academy of Sciences Report: Optics and Photonics: Essential Technologies for Our Nation by the Committee on the Harnessing Light: Capitalizing on Optical Science Trends and Challenges for Future Research report which will be released by the National Academy of Sciences on August 13. The report is a follow-up to the 1998 Harnessing Light for Optical Science and Engineering for the 21st Century report. In the past ten years, enormous progress has been made in the development of optical technologies for solid-state lighting, photovoltaics, manufacturing, fiber optic telecommunications, defense, displays, and diagnostic medicine.

With the new report, the National Academies intends to identify technological opportunities and applications in optics today, assess the current state of optics worldwide from a market perspective, prioritize a set of "grand challenge" questions to fill technological gaps, and recommend actions for development and maintenance of the field.

Be among the first to hear directly from the Harnessing Light committee members on the state of optics worldwide and opportunities for the future.
