While You Were Away: Photonics Lab

Story Series
Bridgewater Magazine

A new lab inside the Dana Mohler-Faria Science and Mathematics Center comprises three spaces, where experiments can be conducted in everything from fiber optics to quantum photonic applications.

Dr. Samuel Serna Otalvaro of the Department of Physics, Photonics and Optical Engineering said that thanks to the new lab, students now have access to state-of-the-art equipment for learning and training, as well as participating in projects with industry leaders and students and faculty at leading universities. The lab will give BSU students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with light-based technologies of today and tomorrow.

With the new lab opening this fall, BSU welcomed its first class of photonics and optical engineering students.
It is the first such program in the state’s public higher education system.

The official ribbon-cutting ceremony for the photonics lab has been set for spring 2022.
