Traveling Lecturer Program

This 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 Chapter and Section may invite 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 a traveling lecturer.
