OSA funds standards writing activities

This month we report on several recent, tangible actions taken by major organizations involved with optics. The most recent is the decision by the OSA Board of Directors to give $15,000 as start-up funding for domestic optical standards work, with the understanding that the optics industry contributes like or greater sums in following years. This money will supplement the funds already being given by the American Ceramic Society (ACS), the Scientific Apparatus Manufacturers Association (SAMA), the American Precision Optical Manufacturers Association (APOMA), the Optical Laboratories Association (OLA), and the Laser and Electro-optical Manufacturers Association (LEOMA).
