Photonics Society of Poland (PSP) - Polskie Stowarzyszenie Fotoniczne was transformed from the SPIE Poland Chapter on October 18, 2007 during the Extraordinary General Meeting of the SPIE Poland Chapter members. All the members unanimously voted (103 out of 199 SPIE PL members) for transformation of the SPIE Poland Chapter to Photonics Society of Poland. The similar unanimous decision was confirmed by the General Members Meeting on February 25, 2008. The whole registration process of the Photonics Society of Poland was finished in March 2008 by official approval of the National Registration Court in Warsaw.
The reaction of SPIE Headquarters was straightforward and enthusiastic:
“I wish you a very successful meeting later this week and assure you of an ongoing close and supportive relationship with the new Photonics Society of Poland. SPIE’s leadership recognizes and greatly appreciates the wonderful work done by the chapter members in Poland and I know there is sadness in a way at losing our model chapter, but we believe that this step is the fullest recognition of what the chapter there has done. We wish all our chapters had developed in a way to take a similar step”. (Eugene Arthurs)
The official opening ceremony of the Photonics Society of Poland took place on May 31, 2008 during First Symposium of PSP.
Photonics Society of Poland (PSP) is presently with its 167 members (as of 18 May 2022) the largest and the most powerful optics/optoelectronics/photonics organization in Poland. It has already started integration and consolidations activities with Polish Technology Platform on Photonics, Committee of Electronics and Telecommunication/Polish Academy of Sciences and with Polish Committee of Optoelectronics/ Society of Polish Electrical Engineers.
Optica announced Senior Members for 2022, Tomasz Woliński is one of them ! A total of 170 Optica members have received the distinction of Senior Member, which recognizes their experience and professional accomplishment within the field of optics and photonics.
