OSA | Living History

Formerly known as the Optoelectronics Industry Development Association, OIDA is now known as OSA Industry Development Associates.



The Optoelectronics Industry Development Association (OIDA) formed in 1991 to help advance the optoelectronics industry in North America.

In 2015, following a partnership in 2011, OIDA and OSA Corporate Associates merged into a single operation focused on serving and representing more than 260 industry members of the optics and photonics community. OIDA is now a powerful voice for industry to government and academia.
