SPIE Volunteers Urge Congress to Boost Jobs, Economy through Photonics Support
Date:3/25/2013

WASHINGTON, D.C., and BELLINGHAM, Washington (PRWEB) March 24, 2013

Volunteers sponsored by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, were in Washington, D.C., last week to thank Congressional representatives for recent support for photonics R&D and to urge future support for in several key areas vital to economic growth and scientific progress. They were among more than 250 scientists, engineers, and business leaders visiting Capitol Hill 12-13 March for a Congressional Visits Day (CVD) sponsored by the Science-Engineering-Technology (SET) Work Group.

SPIE volunteers focused primarily on three messages identified by the SPIE Engineering, Science, and Technology Policy (ESTeP):

  • Support for a National Photonics Initiative (NPI) being forwarded by a coalition of professional societies including SPIE, LIA (Laser Institute of America), IEEE Photonics Society, OSA (The Optical Society), and the American Physical Society. The NPI will foster increased collaboration and coordination between industry, government, and academia to identify and advance areas of photonics that are critical for maintaining U.S. competitiveness and national security.
  • Overhaul of export controls. Overly restrictive regulations on dual-use technologies and inconsistent interpretation and enforcement have created business, research, and workforce barriers that limit U.S. leade
