Welcome to the Fitzpatrick Institute for Photonics

The Fitzpatrick Institute for Photonics is an extensively interdisciplinary Duke University-wide effort to advance photonics and optical sciences.

The mission of the Fitzpatrick Institute is profoundly educational. The institute was founded in 2000 in part to meet an unmet industry need for graduates with the knowledge and skills to transform industrial R&D in photonics and optical science. Our faculty teach undergraduates, master's and doctoral students and foster the technical, collaboration, interdisciplinary exploration, and team-orientation skills set that enables our proteges to thrive in their chosen professions.
