The National Photonics Initiative, a broad-based collaborative alliance among industry, academia, and government to raise awareness of optics, photonics and quantum science and technology, helped host Mississippi Senator Roger Wicker at Ocean Springs-based PFG Precision Optics earlier this week. During the visit, Senator Wicker and his wife Gayle were able to see first-hand the operations of one of the highly regarded participants in the optics and photonics industry. During the site visit, he met with technicians, engineers, and management to learn about the manufacturing of high precision optical components, which PFG Precision Optics provides to the defense, semiconductor and medical industries as well as to scientists at universities and national laboratories around the country.
