About this Item

xiii, 114p, [4]; 29 cm. Sponsored by IEEE Quantum Electronics and Applications Society and Optical Society of America. From Wikipedia: "The IEEE Photonics Society, formerly the IEEE Lasers and Electro-Optics Society (LEOS), is a society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), focused on the scientific and engineering knowledge about the field of quantum electronics. In the hierarchy of IEEE, the Photonics Society is one of the close to 40 technical societies organized under the IEEE Technical Activities Board. The society's website states that its Field of Interest "shall be lasers, optical devices, optical fibers, and associated lightwave technology and their applications in systems and subsystems in which quantum electronic devices are key elements. The society is concerned with the research, development, design, manufacture, and applications of materials, devices and systems, and with the various scientific and technological activities which contribute to the useful expansion of the field of quantum electronics and applications". The Society supports publications, sponsors meetings, and other forms of information exchange. The foundation of the society was made in 1965 by establishing the IEEE Quantum Electronics Council (QEC). In 1977, under the leadership of Henry Kressel, the council became the IEEE Quantum Electronics and Applications Society (QEAS). On January 1, 1985, the society was renamed into IEEE Lasers and Electro-Optics Society (LEOS). On April 9, 2009 the society was again renamed, now into IEEE Photonics Society." From Wikipedia: "The Optical Society (originally established as the Optical Society of America, OSA) is a scientific society dedicated to advancing the study of light optics and photonics in theory and application, by means of publishing, organizing conferences and exhibitions, partnership with industry, and education. The organization has members in more than 100 countries, OSA had 17, 000 individual members and more than 230 corporate member companies. OSA was founded in 1916, under the leadership of Perley G. Nutting, with 30 optical scientists and instrument makers based in Rochester, New York. OSA soon began publication of its first journal of research results and established an annual meeting. It was founded as the "Optical Society of America" and has evolved into a global enterprise with a worldwide constituency. In recognition of this, the society was renamed in 2008 as The Optical Society (OSA). The mission of the Optical Society is to promote the generation, dissemination, application, and archiving of knowledge in optics and photonics. The purposes of the Society are scientific, technical, and educational. Scientific publishing is a core activity of the society, consisting of 16 flagship, partnered and co-published peer-reviewed journals and 1 magazine. With more than 240, 000 articles including papers from over 450 conferences, the digital library, Optics InfoBase, is the largest peer-reviewed collection of optics and photonics." Good.
