The 2021 Optical Technology Center is scheduled for Thursday, October 21, 2021. This is an annual optical science and engineering conference where undergraduate and graduate students, research staff, and faculty report on recent developments in optics at Montana State University and companies share new developments in industry. After a day of oral presentations, a highlight of the meeting is always the evening catered poster session that includes many local and regional businesses.


if the COVID-19 situation allows, the 2021 annual meeting will be held as an in-person event (with masks for increased safety) on October 21, 2021 at Inspiration Hall in Norm Asbjornson Hall on the MSU campus. We will monitor the pandemic situation carefully and adjust to a virtual event if needed.
