The Optical Technology Center holds an annual optical science and engineering conference where undergraduate and graduate students, research staff, and faculty report on recent developments in optics at Montana State University and local companies share new developments in industry. We also typically invite a small number of external visitors with whom we are conducting or exploring collaborations. After a day of oral presentations, a highlight of the meeting is always the evening catered poster session that includes many local and regional businesses.

  • The 2020 annual meeting was held on Thursday, 29 October 2020 via Webex.
  • If the pandemic abates sufficiently, the 2021 annual meeting will be held in early August 2021.
