OSA Traveling Lecturer Program

The OSA Traveling Lecturer Directory features distinguished scientists and engineers who have volunteered to serve as a resource to the OSA Student Chapters and Local Sections. As part of their benefits, each Student Chapter and Local Section may host one Traveling Lecturer per year.

Listings are sorted alphabetically by last name and include possible discussion topics and corresponding Optics Classification and Indexing Scheme (OCIS) codes. Please follow these steps to prepare to host an OSA Traveling Lecturer.
