About the vital role photonics play in our everyday lives.
Photonics is addressing & solving the challenges of a modern world.
Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle support greater US investment in photonics
SUNY Polytechnic Institute and other members of the New York consortium have been selected for the IP IMI.
Now is the time for the United States to make photonics a national priority.
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.
