Rochester Photonics Hub


After wrangling over where the new headquarters for a new photonics institute will go, the announcement is expected today that it will be at Legacy Tower, which is the former Bausch and Lomb building in Rochester's downtown.

There was a public squabble last month over whether that headquarters should be located at the Sibley Building, or Legacy Tower, and eventually, University of Rochester President Joel Seligman and SUNY Polytechnic Institute President Alain Kaloyeros issuing a joint statement indicating they would be working together on coordinating the photonics efforts.
