About FiO/LS


High-Quality Research. Valuable Connections.

These meetings focus on timely topics in optical science and engineering and provide a place for members to exchange ideas and to expand their network of colleagues in both academia and industry.

Frontiers in Optics

As we look forward to the next 100 years of innovation, Frontiers in Optics returns to Rochester, the birthplace of The Optical Society.

FiO 2016—the 100th OSA Annual Meeting—encompasses the breadth of optical science and engineering and provides an atmosphere that fosters the exchange of information between those working on fundamental research and those looking for solutions to engineering problems. Special symposia and other major events further highlight major advances in many selected areas.


Laser Science

This serves as the 32ndAnnual Meeting of the American Physical Society (APS) of its Division of Laser Science (DLS) and provides an important forum for presenting the latest work on laser applications and development, spanning a broad range of topics in physics, biology and chemistry.

In collaboration with  colleagues at OSA, DLS will provide thorough coverage of mutually interesting topics in a number of joint sessions. Session schedules are coordinated to encourage your intellectual wanderings among DLS, OSA and joint sessions. Be prepared to engage in outstanding technical programs, exciting special symposia and networking events scheduled for this year's annual meeting.
