SPIE offers condolences to China

SPIE sends its deepest condolences to the people whose lives have been so terribly affected by the recent earthquakes in China. No words can appropriately express the sorrow we feel over the loss of life and for the many lives that will be forever changed by this disaster.

As a gesture of support, the Society and staff will be making a donation on behalf of the membership to the Institute of Optics and Electronics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Chengdu.
