Optical Science and Engineering. New Directions and Opportunities in Research and Education. NSF Workshop (Arlington, VA, May 23-24, 1994).
National Science Foundation, Arlington, VA.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) workshop on Optical Science and Engineering was organized to examine approaches NSF could use to identify opportunities in optical science, engineering, and education that meet both the mission of NSF and its broader national goals. The workshop participants identified opportunities where optical science and engineering research conducted by small interdisciplinary teams of investigators would significantly accelerate progress in areas of interest to the nation including the national information infrastructure, biology and medicine, chemistry and physics, materials processing and manufacturing, and education. This report contains: (1) an executive summary; (2) an introduction to the workshop and it's organization; (3) basic findings and recommendations; (4) panel reports (panels include Information and Communication, Biology and Biomedical Engineering, Optical and Photonic Materials and Devices, Fundamental Optical Interactions, Optical Processing and Manufacturing, and Instrumentation and Sensing); and (5) NSF-wide initiative in optical science and engineering.
