SPIE asked leaders in the optics and photonics community to give some advice to students interested in the field. Astronomers, professors, CEOs, a Nobel Prize winner, and others all give their answer to the question, "What advice would you give to a student or young professional interested in optics and/or photonics?" This is a small collection of their responses.
What is OPTICAL ENGINEERING? What does OPTICAL ENGINEERING mean? OPTICAL ENGINEERING meaning - OPTICAL ENGINEERING definition - OPTICAL ENGINEERING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Optical engineering is the field of study that focuses on applications of optics. Optical engineers design components of optical instruments such as lenses, microscopes, telescopes, and other equipment that utilizes the properties of light. Other devices include optical sensors and measurement systems, lasers, fiber optic communication systems, optical disc systems (e.g. CD, DVD), etc. Because optical engineers want to design and build devices that make light do something useful, they must understand and apply the science of opt...
The technique, called cathodoluminescence tomography, could assist in the development of high-efficiency solar cells and LEDS, or improve the way biological systems are visualized.
Although a common misconception, individual optical lenses do not always form an image when the object plane is placed a focal length away from the lens. Rather, image location is dependent on object location. Join Monica Rainey, Optical Engineer, as she explains focal length and how to form an image with three simple real-world optical lens (http://www.edmundoptics.com/lenses/) setups.

Bill describes the Alignment Optical Telescope used in the Lunar Module on the Apollo missions to the moon. This telescope took star sightings which were used to align the Module's guidance system. Bill shows how the telescope used an Archimedes spiral inscribed on its eyepiece to replace the heavy motors, worm gears, and rigid tracks used in a traditional sextant -- this shaved weight from the Lunar Module and allowed it to carry more fuel.

In the Photonics and Optics Laboratory in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, researchers investigate nanophotonics — manipulating light at the nanoscale, and intense light pulses in materials, or nonlinear optics. Assistant Professor Nathaniel Kinsey, Ph.D., and Ümit Özgür, Ph.D., Qimonda Associate Professor and Graduate Program Director of the department, explain.
