Principals of Opticks

Optics is known for its landmark discoveries, and science will continue to be shaped by principal figures whose insight and dedication impact the future in bold ways. Established in 2013, the Principals of Opticks is a prestigious group recognizing patrons who are committed to advancing opportunities for future leaders in this field by generously donating $75,000 or more to a scholarship endowment at The University of Arizona College of Optical Sciences.
