The congressman met with employees, local business leaders and researchers to discuss the benefits of photonics and the role it plays in solving the challenges of a modern world. “My tour of Directed Light today highlighted how photonics enables our day-to-day lives, and I saw firsthand the ways in which optics and photonics support our local economy,” Honda said. “We must ensure US workers receive the training they need to have careers in this important, expanding industry.”
