The NES/OSA (New England Section of the Optical Society of America) is a group of industry professionals and interested individuals promoting the knowledge of Optics including applications and phenomena.
Monthly Lecture Series
The NES/OSA meets monthly from September to May, generally excluding December, on the third Thursday of each month. Our meetings include a social hour, dinner and talk. These meetings are open to all individuals while members receive the benefits of a monthly mailing, reduced meeting dinner price and voting privileges during council elections.
The NES/OSA is active in the support of optics education in area schools. The organization sponsors symposia and invited speakers for teachers, teaching grants for optics projects and science fairs. We participate in educational outreach events all over New England. Events include local, regional, and state science fairs as well as a variety of STEM events. We are always looking for volunteers to help us corrupt young minds in the ways of the optical sciences.
