Here we support students from all aspects of the sciences. We have supported the mechanical engineering department as well as Ph.D. candidates for optical science and engineering. The CAO has mentored more than forty Ph.D. students during our 20 year history. We have held more than 65 invited lectures covering the subject of optics and have helped many dozens of high school students in their search for understanding the world of optics.
