Patents

Innovation and invention are daily occurrences at the College of Optical Sciences. The field of optics is full of possibilities — as Nobel laureate and OSC professor Nicolaas Bloembergen explains, " I think that what attracts me most ... is the eternal fascination of discovering, in my laboratory or at my desk, something that no one before me has found."
