Paper Abstract

The Rochester, NY regional photonics industry is in a period a technological and organizational change. Over the past seventy years the regional has enjoyed a reputation as one of the premium optics and imaging (photonics systems) centers of the world. In the past, the driving force behind this preeminence was a small number of larger diversified companies with strong technological competencies and internally oriented operations. Supporting these firms were dozens of small optics, components, and imaging suppliers who grew and declined with their primary customers. Today's competitive photonics industry is far different technologically and organizationally then what existed 20 to 40 years ago.
