In addition, your membership will give you a voice, via the activities of the AOS Council, in the development of optics in this region, for which the AOS is the primary representative body. The AOS has members working in commercial, academic and teaching areas in visible optics, laser optics, IR & UV optics, X-ray optics, spectroscopy and atom optics, neutron optics, quantum optics, medical optics, imaging, and applications, to name a few broad categories of interest. Our conferences are usually very strong in visible and laser optics and applications, and usually have good representation in the other areas. Typical conferences have 200-400 attendees when not enhanced by collocation with other conferences.
This additionally includes:
· A page of advertising (Black and White) in each issue of AOS News – typically four issues a year distributed widely to the optics and photonics community, primarily in Australia and New Zealand (the last issues each went to ~350 people).
· Space in AOS News for a short paragraph on new product news, including a picture,
