Spectra is a student-led imaging society that encompasses the student groups of the international society for optics and photonics (SPIE), the optical society (OSA), and the imaging sciences pathway (ISP). Our aim is to create and build a community at Washington University in St. Louis centered on the study and advancement of different imaging modalities. In addition, we seek to promote the educational advancement of the K-12 students of the greater St. Louis community into scientific fields of study.
