Uniting the Southern California Optics Community

OSSC Logo
The Optical Society of Southern California was founded in 1951 to increase and disseminate the knowledge of optics and closely allied sciences and to promote the mutual interests of investigators, organizations, teachers and students in these fields.

The Society is a local section of the Optical Society of America and typically meets on the second Wednesday of each month from October through June.  Most of our meetings are open to the public.  Those interested in promoting our goals are urged to apply for either Individual or Corporate Memberships.
