Welcome to the Fitzpatrick Institute for Photonics





FIP 2024 Symposium - Register


An extensively interdisciplinary Duke-wide effort to advance photonics and optical sciences

Our mission is profoundly educational. The institute was founded in 2000 to meet an industry need for graduates with the knowledge and skills to transform industrial R&D in photonics and optical science.

Our faculty teach undergraduates, masters and doctoral students and foster the technical, collaboration, interdisciplinary exploration, and team-orientation skillset that enables our proteges to thrive in their chosen professions.
