We will continue the great work of OP-TEC and expand the topical coverage and audiences of this newsletter. OPEN will be addressing the photonics interests of three groups: community college instructors, K-12 teachers, and photonics industry hiring our graduates. Each edition will have a different focus depending on the needs of each of these three different groups. Additionally, every issue will remind you of the many photonics resources that have been created and are available online. We want this publication to be useful and add value to your work. Your inputs and suggestions are always welcome.
With best wishes for a great fall semester and a great year,
Executive Director, LASER-TEC
