About the Conference

The 2022 Optical Technology Center is scheduled for Thursday, September 29, 2022. This is an annual optical science and engineering conference where undergraduate and graduate students, research staff, and faculty report on recent developments in optics at Montana State University and companies share new developments in industry. After a day of oral presentations, a highlight of the meeting is always the evening catered poster session that includes many local and regional businesses.


if the COVID-19 situation allows, the 2022 annual meeting will be held as an in-person event on September 29, 2022 at Inspiration Hall in Norm Asbjornson Hall (enter at the east end of the third floor) on the MSU campus.
