Tuesday, 07 May 14:30 – 16:00
The CLEO Hub Theater

This panel centers on recent announcements of government funding awards in optics and photonics, including some related to the U.S. CHIPS and Science Act. The CHIPS and Science Act was signed into law in 2022, and the government has recently made some awards and development grants to develop a full proposal. Meanwhile, the IPSR-I (Integrated Photonic Systems Roadmap-International, a collaboration between PhotonDelta and the MIT Microphotonics Center, has a new edition of its roadmap to address photonic integrated circuit (PIC) technology. Come to hear about these developments and what may be coming to optics and photonics.
