Participate in Congressional Visits Day Feb. 28-Mar. 1

Join the NPI for Congressional Visits Day in Washington, DC on Feb. 28-Mar. 1, 2023. This is a great opportunity to advocate for science, and specifically optics and photonics, to your members of Congress and their staff.

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.
