Optical Engineering • Open AccessSuccession
My first exposure to Optical Engineering occurred as a graduate student at Georgia Tech shortly after I attended an SPIE optical fibers conference in Atlanta and subsequently became a student member of SPIE. Perhaps for that reason, I have always maintained a sentimental connection to this prestigious journal. I recall receiving my first copy of Optical Engineering in the mail, attempting to read and understand each article, and realizing that I had much to learn about optics. Fortunately, that learning process has never ended.
