Upstate New York has long enjoyed a strategic advantage in Optics, Photonics and Imaging (OPI). Rochester-based companies have led the way in adaptive optics, biomedical optics, geospatial imaging, aspheres, thin films, freeform optics, advanced metrology, and more.

The Meeting will feature discussions on sustaining the region's competitive advantage in OPI and the possibility of a National Center for Optics & Photonics Manufacturing in Rochester. 

Congresswoman Louise Slaughter (NY-25), an ardent advocate for bringing Optics & Photonics support to Rochester, will present opening remarks. Other speakers include: 

  • Kevin Füchsel, Head of Department Strategy - Marketing - Coordination, Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering
