Uniting the Southern California Optics Community

OSSC Logo

The Optical Society of Southern California is a local section of the Optical Society (OSA) founded in 1951 to increase and disseminate knowledge of optics and allied sciences.  The Society meets monthly from October through June and also organizes regular family-friendly outreach events.  Most of our meetings and events are open to the public. Please join us and bring your friends.
