National University of Ireland, Galway

Welcome to the home of the OSA student chapter for the National University of Ireland, Galway. We are a part of the greater worldwide student network of the Optical Society of America. The chapter consists of several post-graduate students working on various topics in the field of optics, based in the School of Physics.

As a chapter, we aim to proliferate the teaching and understanding of optics to the general public. As a part of this, we engage in social outreach to schools and communities in the West of Ireland.


This year is of particular importance to the OSA as we celebrate the centenary of the society. Find out more here:
