The NYS Photonics Board of officers has decided and the National Headquarters of Photonics will be settled at the Eastman Business Park. Photonics has the potential to revolutionize internet networks to transmit more data at faster speeds; enhance medical technology; reduce the cost of sequencing the human genome; and improve battlefield imaging and radar capabilities for national defense.

Congresswoman Louise Slaughter says the NYS Photonics Board of officers has selected the Eastman Business Park for where the facility will be located and serve as the National Headquarters of Photonics.

Photonics is a field that impacts a wide range of industries. It has the potential to revolutionize internet networks to transmit more data at faster speeds; enhance medical technology; reduce the cost of sequencing the human genome; and improve battlefield imaging and radar capabilities for national defense.

Slaughter started leading this effort more than four years ago. Those behind the Photonics industry are meeting Wednesday with other state officials. Messenger Post Media, along with our news partner, News10NBC will continue to follow this developing business news.
