The UNESCO International Day of Light, 16 May, serves to highlight the critical and diverse roles that light plays in our daily lives. Light has specific meaning to each local community, and finding that which has the greatest impact can be challenging. In the proper context, local festivals serve as a fertile ground for light appreciation, bringing together diverse local groups. We provide the devices for exploration of colorimetry, imaging, and color matching demonstrations at an otherwise social local festival. Methods of assembly and planning for the multi-day display are outlined.
This Field Guide provides a basic understanding of how we measure, identify, communicate, specify, and render color. It addresses color order systems, color spaces, color measurement, color difference, additive and subtractive color, and color modeling.
The success of fabrication of optical coatings depends on a proper choice of a theoretical coating design and on the
choice of monitoring strategy that provides low thickness errors for the chosen design. Software tools described in this
presentation help an optical coating engineer to investigate a potential manufacturability of a given theoretical design
when various monochromatic monitoring strategies are applied. This may help to reduce or even eliminate test
deposition runs required for a successful coating fabrication.

WS914: Becoming an Optical Engineering Consultant
This course will review all of the benefits and challenges of a consulting career in optics. Each attendee will be given the opportunity to self-evaluate based on their engineering and business strengths. Topics such as how to set up your business, sole-proprietorships vs. incorporation, determining fees, marketing, legal issues with clients, balancing family and work, invoicing, managing finances, websites, success evaluation, and taxes will be covered.
SC842: Optical Coating Design and Analysis for High Manufacturability
This course provides attendees with the basic principles of constructing the most practical optical coating design. The main sources of production errors are considered and estimated. Choosing appropriate monitoring strategies for successful production of optical coatings of various types is discussed. The course demonstrates how post-production optical characterization is used to increase production yield. The course presents the potential benefits of computational manufacturing as a tool for reducing production costs and raising design manufacturability.
