Optical standards: the missing link in optics and photonics educational programs
Author(s): Nikolay Stoev

Paper Abstract

Educational programs in optics and photonics contain superior fundamental and specialized courses, and yet optical standards and standardization aspects are often missing from the curricula. Although international standardization aims at eliminating technical barriers to trade, many graduates learn about industry standards during their first job. This presentation provides an overview of existing standards in optics and photonics and latest developments in the field. It provides information about the international organizations involved and the specialty areas covered by standards. Courses or educational modules covering existing industry standards and international standardization efforts may become a valuable addition to educational programs in optics and photonics.
