The Swiss Society for Photon Science was founded in 2019.

Its mission is to represent and support scientists active in the many different fields of photon science. It speaks with one voice and provides input to strategic planning of photon science in Switzerland. Through periodic newsletters and events, the Swiss Society for Photon Science aims to advance the science of light and to raise the awareness of photon sciences as one of the central pillars of our daily life. SSPh's core values are respect, integrity and inclusivity and a commitment to excellence and diversity.

The SSPh is open to everybody interested in the topics represented by the society.
