Optics and Photonics are Specialized Fields of Physics and Engineering
From fiber optics and telecommunications to medical imaging and cancer research, optics and photonics are advancing today’s critical technologies. Based on the science of light, optics and photonics are specialized fields of physics and engineering. These technologies are prevalent in almost every aspect of day-to-day life. From your computer screen to your cell phone and car headlights, optics and photonics are critical technologies that will continue to grow and enhance people’s lives.
成立于1916年,发展至今,OSA已经拥有超过14,000位会员, 遍及81个国家,成为一个科学的、技术性的和教育性的机构。OSA通过专业的出版物、学术会议和各种活动及其他服务实现它的宗旨:促进光学和光子学知识的发展、应用和保存,并将这些知识传播到全世界。除了光学和光子学领域、还为物理学、生物学、医学、电气工程、通讯、天文学、气象学、材料科学、机械工程和计算等诸多领域的专家学者提供高水准的信息服务

Optics and Photonics Technologies Enhance the Quality of Life in Many Areas
Medicine and Health
Optics and photonics are utilized in numerous medical devices that help to save lives. Imaging equipment used for CAT, MRI and PET scans, as well as mammography, aid in the diagnosis of disease.

Defense and Homeland Security
Science and engineering research is the basis for many of the technologies currently being deployed to prevent and detect chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and conventional terrorist attacks, as well as treat victims.

Telecommunications
Fiber optics connect the world through high-speed communications. In fact, the World Wide Web was developed by optics researchers. Today’s optics research is bringing higher-speed communications to our homes via fiber technology − enabling advanced data transmissions, like video streaming, and other broadband applications.

Consumer Technologies
Many of today’s “must-have” technologies such as digital cameras, high definition TVs and PDAs, were developed through optics and photonics research. Further research is expected to yield even more consumer products designed to enhance quality of life.
