    OSC on the Cover of a Magazine

    "The Global Impact of UA Optics" is the cover story of the spring 2015 issue of BizTucson. The article features an OSC timeline and a sidebar some of the corporations spun off by college alumni, faculty and staff. Read it online or pick up a hard copy at the UA Bookstores, Foothills Mall, AJ's Fine Foods, the Tucson Airport or any Basha's grocery store location.
