17 September 2020 Rochester, NY. Over 150 Years Harnessing the Power of Light
Author Affiliations +
If Jena, Germany has a sister city of light in North America, it is certainly Rochester, on the "north coast" of the United States in New York’s beautiful Finger Lakes region. Home to more than 120 OPI companies employing over 18,000 workers, New York Photonics members serve biomedical, aerospace, consumer products, research, automotive and defense-related markets with optics, photonics and imaging components and products. The history is old by North American standards, dating back to 1853 when Bausch and Lomb was established, and today includes important breakthroughs in free-form optics and integrated photonics. A broad historical perspective about America’s biggest and longest standing OPI cluster will be offered.
