What is a good college in the philadelphia/penn state area for optics.
Closest ones to that area that I can think of are University of Rochester and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology. There are a number of closer institutions that would be good for graduate study and research in specific areas of optics (UPenn, MIT, etc.), but they don't have the breadth of coursework and research opportunities that I would consider desirable at the undergraduate level.
