“Rochester has been, since 1853, since the founding of Bausch + Lomb, the center of the optics industry in the United States,” said Paul Ballentine, deputy director of the Center for Emerging and Innovative Sciences at the University of Rochester. “We don’t want to say we are trying to get on the map, that would be a grave injustice to the community.”
In the area, photonics and related fields such as optics and imagining account for about 17,000 jobs at more than 75 companies. Statewide, the industry supports more than 25,000 jobs at 300 companies across New York state. The global market is about $500 billion with the Finger Lakes region accounting for about 1 percent of that market.
Notions of pure love and romance, untainted by financial interest or familial interference, have since come to serve as important reference points for many Chinese. In recent decades, however, the country’s wave of new wealth, combined with an overheated real estate market, has returned material considerations and transactions to the forefront of relations between the sexes.
Thomas DiPiero is Southern Methodist University’s new dean of Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences, university officials announced Tuesday.

When mice younger than 2 weeks old were exposed to very small particles of pollutants, their brains showed damage that is consistent with brain changes in humans with autism and schizophrenia. That’s not to say air pollution causes either one, said Deborah Cory-Slechta, professor of environmental medicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center and lead researcher in the study published Friday.
The EPA says that the regulations will reduce those conventional pollutants by more than 25% over the lifetime of the rules as a co-benefit.
That might just be the beginning—the more we learn about air pollution, the more dangerous it seems even at lower levels. A new study from the University of Rochester found that exposure to air pollution at a young age caused changes in the brains of mice, including an enlargement in the parts of the brain that is seen in humans with autism and schizophrenia.
The small slice of MBAs looking for work in the manufacturing industry (7 percent) will jump into a field that’s gone overlooked in recent years and mired in misconceptions, says Karen Dowd, assistant dean of career management and corporate engagement at Rochester’s Simon Business School.
The first step to establish an optics/photonics manufacturing institute in the Rochester region has been taken with the Department of Defense issuing a request for information this week from academia and industry seeking to be the site for such an institute. Locally, the Rochester Regional Photonics Cluster, which includes representation from industry as well as […]
“…There’s no use lamenting the fact you are stressed. I like to use it to become focused and motivated to succeed. It might sound like a cliché, but pressure makes diamonds, and without it, they would just be plain and boring rocks.”
