Paper Abstract

Optical standards will play an increasingly vital role in optical design, manufacture and testing as optics replace electronics and become the information transfer and analysis media of the 21st century. We will first describe the function and importance of optical standards to the optics community. Then we will describe the status of domestic optical standards and the government position on standards in general. This is followed by a summary of the work being done on international standards for optics. We conclude with a plan for the future that will keep the US optical industry from falling further behind our international competition.
