Paper Abstract

In this presentation the topic surrounding NSF's role in the growing research area of photonics, i.e., optical communications, optical information processing, optoelectronics, and optical computing, is discussed. In particular, the interaction of university research and industrial participation is explored. Opportunities for joint projects, information exchange, sharing of equipment, expertise, and facilities among research partners is explored. The changing posture of NSF in terms of emphasis on education, cross-disciplinary activities, human resources, and interaction with government labs and industry is introduced.
