  • The 2015 Nobel Prize in physics was awarded today to Takaaki Kajita, University of Tokyo, Japan, and to Arthur B. McDonald, Queen’s University, Canada, for their contributions to experiments showing that neutrinos — very common but hard-to-detect particles — have mass.

  • Researchers at the University of Rochester have demonstrated a key achievement in shrinking photonic devices below the diffraction limit — a necessary step on the road to making photonic circuits competitive with today's technology.

  • Today, The Optical Society joins with manufacturers across the United States to promote continued investment in technology and manufacturing innovations on National Manufacturing Day.

  • The Optical Society (OSA) announced today that it has implemented a technology solution that effectively supports U.S. federal agency public access requirements and helps authors comply with governmental mandates to make their federally funded articles publicly available after a 12-month embargo. By partnering with CHORUS (Clearinghouse for the Open Research of the United States), OSA enables an option for readers and agencies to easily discover federally funded articles published by OSA and to then access the full-text of these articles directly on OSA's platform, OSA Publishing.

  • A team of researchers from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, have demonstrated new techniques that bring lasers as lighting rods closer to reality.
