The Stanford Optical Society is a student-run organization at Stanford University interested in the promotion of optical science and technology. We collaborate with the Optical Society of America (OSA) Headquarters, SPIE Headquarters, other OSA and SPIE student chapters, and groups like the Stanford Photonics Research Center (SPRC) to provide exciting educational, networking, and community outreach activities.
"For my doctoral research in the Moerner Lab at Stanford University, I designed microscopes and computational tools for three-dimensional super-resolution imaging of single fluorescent molecules. I also simultaneously measured the orientation and 3D position of single molecules for the first time,designed an introductory optics course for undergraduates, chaired the Stanford University Photonics Retreat, and served as co-president of the Stanford Optical Society."
