Princeton Optica Student Chapter


The OSA student chapter provides its members with professional networking, career development and technical programming. The chapter works to raise awareness of optics and photonics through participation in events at Princeton University and in the local community through youth education outreach activities such as science fairs, lab tours and classroom demonstrations. Journal club meetings are hosted by graduate students to discuss current progress and trends in the field of optical science, with invited lectures offered by leading researchers in the field.

If you are interested in presenting at an upcoming journal club, please sign up for an available date here
