Career Directions--Photonics Technician
Moore, Pam
Tech Directions, v71 n7 p25-26 Feb 2012
Many of the advances in telecommunications and medicine are due to laser and fiber-optic technology. This technology has led to devices that provide faster and richer communication, advanced surgeries, and faster healing times, as well as amazing robotics for manufacturing. But, as with all equipment, someone has to install and maintain it. That is what photonics technicians do. These professionals are responsible for building, installing, testing, and maintaining optical and fiber-optic equipment such as lasers, lenses, and optics systems. In this article, the author discusses everything students need to know about careers for photonics technicians--wages, responsibilities, education and skills needed, advancement possibilities, and more.
