Formerly a printed newsletter that was published bi-monthly, IEEE Photonics News articles are now published bi-monthly through this website.  The IEEE Photonics News Editors acquire most articles by connecting with leaders, labs, and research centers. Chapters, Members, Sister Societies and Community Partners are also encouraged to submit articles directly. We welcome all contributions. Submitted articles will then be assigned an Editor and be reviewed for inclusion.
