Innovating the Future


The National Photonics Initiative (NPI) is a collaborative alliance among industry, academia and government seeking to raise awareness of photonics - the application of light - and drive US funding and investment in five key photonics-driven fields critical to US competitiveness and national security: advanced manufacturing, communications and information technology, defense and national security, energy, and health and medicine. Download the NPI white paper, "Lighting the Path to a Competitive, Secure Future."


The NPI will participate in the Congressional Visits Day (CVD) on March 17 and 18, 2015 in Washington, DC.  This is a great way to educate your local member of Congress about the importance of optics and photonics.  For more information and to sign up please visit here.
