Resources for Optics, Photonics, and Laser Technicians

Optical Technician Resources

Laser, optics and photonics technicians make up the new-collar workforce, embodying creativity, curiosity, and drive to have an impact on the world. Technicians help put light to work. You could be working on components found in the Mars Rover, robots that work in disaster zones, and life-saving medical equipment.

This industry is experiencing increasing growth in all sectors and the demand for well-educated technicians has risen faster than supply to fill those positions. Training programs and prospective technicians can find the resources they need from SPIE to take advantage of this opportunity to meet that demand.
