Field of Interest

The Field of Interest of the Society shall be lasers, optical devices, optical fibers, and associated lightwave technology and their applications in systems and subsystems in which quantum electronic devices are key elements. The society is concerned with the research, development, design, manufacture, and applications of materials, devices and systems, and with the various scientific and technological activities which contribute to the useful expansion of the field of quantum electronics and applications.

The Society shall aid in promoting close cooperation with other IEEE societies and councils in the form of joint publications, sponsorships of meetings, and other forms of information exchange. Appropriate cooperative efforts will also be undertaken with non-IEEE societies.

Mission Statement

The Photonics Society shall advance the interests of its members and the laser, optoelectronics, and photonics professional community by:

  • providing opportunities for information exchange, continuing education, and professional growth
  • publishing journals, sponsoring conferences, and supporting local chapter and student activities
  • formally recognizing the professional contributions of members
  • representing the laser, optoelectronics, and photonics community and serving as its advocate within the IEEE, the broader scientific and technical community, and society at large.
