  • SPIE
  • At the Women in Optics panel discussion, which took place on 9 February at Photonics West, it was noted that the number of female optics and photonics professionals holding SPIE membership as of 2014 stood at 3,000, representing 16 per cent of the total membership - this has grown from four per cent in 1998 when the SPIE Women in Optics group was launched. (electrooptics.com)
  • So, what is being done to widen the participation of women in science and engineering, particularly in optics and photonics, and what further efforts can be made to maintain the growing trend demonstrated by the SPIE membership figures? (electrooptics.com)
  • More specific to the optics and photonics industry, the SPIE Women in Optics programme was launched in 1998 to support personal and professional growth for women in these sectors. (electrooptics.com)
  • As well as holding regular events to promote the work of women in optics and create networking opportunities, SPIE also publishes the annual Women in Optics Planner, which features personal stories of successful women in the field, in order to encourage young women to choose optics as a career. (electrooptics.com)
  • The SPIE Women in Optics panel moderator Kathleen Perkins, chair of the Mathematical Sciences Advisory Board at the University of Arizona, and former CEO of optical software company Breault Research Organisation, started her career in optics in 1992. (electrooptics.com)
  • Optics was not a well-promoted field until recently, say the last ten years with a lot of work done by SPIE, internationally and in Washington DC at the legislative level. (electrooptics.com)
  • The change is apparent just looking at the SPIE Women in Optics 2015 calendar showing a cross section of women working in optics across the organisational chart,' Perkins added. (electrooptics.com)
  • Although the rise in female SPIE members is promising, the increase of women working in optics has been fairly slow, and these figures do not necessarily represent women in leadership, Perkins added. (electrooptics.com)
  • According to SPIE, there is a clear need for female role models in technical fields, which has been demonstrated by the increasing demand for the Women in Optics Planner every year. (electrooptics.com)
  • 2017
  • ETOP-2017, the 14th International Conference on Education and Training in Optics and Photonics - Organized by Zhejiang University and to be held from May 29-31, 2017 in Hangzhou, China. (spie.org)
  • Education
  • ETOP (Education and Training in Optics & Photonics) is a biennial conference that brings together educators from around the world to share information about the practice of teaching optics at all levels. (spie.org)
  • demonstrate
  • It is the goal of this international conference to bring together leading optics and photonics educators from all levels and orientations to discuss, demonstrate and learn about new developments and approaches to teaching in these fields. (spie.org)
  • industry
  • The teaching of optics and photonics, critical fields at the core of today's world-wide technological infrastructure, must continually be upgraded and renewed in order to meet the growing demands of research, science and industry. (spie.org)
  • Membership
  • Although the figures show a rise in the number of females, with just one in six women holding membership, it suggests that they are still greatly outnumbered in the optics and photonics field. (electrooptics.com)
  • Based on this trend, it will take 50 years to reach 50 per cent female participation in optics, and that is based simply on membership, not necessarily women running optics enterprises. (electrooptics.com)
  • Global Optics
  • The record 101 members of the 2018 class of OSA Fellow Members will be recognized at OSA conferences throughout the year for scientific, engineering and technological contributions, as well as industry leadership and service to OSA and the global optics community. (osa-opn.org)
  • Talks
  • OSA 2009 President Thomas Baer talks about the National Photonics Initiative, a new U.S. initiative to increase photonics R&D, grow the U.S. economy and improve national security. (osa-opn.org)
  • 1950s
  • Prompted by the complaints of the so-called "Subversive Optics Society" in the late 1950s, OSA launched a new journal in 1962 to represent modern topics in optics. (osa-opn.org)
  • research
  • Since then, the discovery of other 2-D materials has only sped up research and development in electronics and photonics, with the ultimate goal of one day replacing silicon with "flat" materials and devices. (osa-opn.org)
  • Provided analyses for an Arizona-based subsidiary of a Cleveland, Ohio company on potential export controls of a fiber optic sensing perimeter security system, including advising on entering into a non-disclosure agreement for testing at a leading research university and applicable export controls.

  • Member
  • The firm is a member of New York Photonics/Rochester where our attorneys have presented on issues related to unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and export controls. (phillipslytle.com)
  • scientists
  • from the beginning, "the aim and purpose of this society" has been "to increase and diffuse the knowledge of optics," and to promote the mutual interests of, and cooperation among, scientists, manufacturers and users of optics. (osa-opn.org)
  • laboratory
  • EKSMA Optics owns flat and spherical optics polishing, crystal polishing and IBS coating facilities, cleanroom Pockels cells assembling facility and quality control laboratory. (photonics.com)
  • Over the past several years, LiNbO3 based integrated optics devices have moved from the device designer's laboratory into the more nearly real world of systems experiments. (osa-opn.org)
  • look
  • When people who are interested in optics look at a bubble, they frequently see a beautiful example of colors produced by the interference of light. (osa-opn.org)
  • History
  • The subtitle, "The History of Pure and Applied Optics," best describes the contents of this book. (osa-opn.org)
  • So it is no surprise that names like Newton, Thomas Young, Brewster, Airy, Helmholtz, and Rayleigh loom as large in the history of vision as they do in the history of optics. (osa-opn.org)
  • recent
  • A recent informal survey of some optical science colleagues and students revealed that the notion of reciprocity in optics is not widely appreciated. (osa-opn.org)

  • industries
  • But, while computer-assisted machining has been readily available in most industries, it was not an option for optics manufacturers until recently. (osa-opn.org)
  • Name
  • Name how you would like to alter the characteristics of an optical wave and chances are you can design a Ti:LiNbO3 integrated optic device to do attributes by themselves, however, do not guarantee unequivocal commercial success. (osa-opn.org)
