Course Instructor
SC1086: Optical Materials, Fabrication and Testing for the Optical Engineer
This course is designed to give the optical engineer or lens designer an introduction to the technologies and techniques of optical materials, fabrication and testing. This knowledge will help the optical engineer understand how the choice of optical specifications and tolerances can either lead to more cost effective optical components, or can excessively drive the price up. Topics covered include optical materials, traditional, CNC and novel optical fabrication technologies, surface testing and fabrication tolerances.
SC1136: Infrared Optical Materials, Fabrication and Testing for the Optical Engineer
This course is designed to give the optical engineer or lens designer an introduction to the technologies and techniques of infrared optical materials, fabrication and testing. This knowledge will help the optical engineer understand which optical specifications/tolerances lead to more cost effective optical components. Topics covered include conventional and newly developed infrared optical materials, traditional, CNC and novel optical fabrication technologies, surface testing and fabrication tolerances.
SC1171: Seeing, Analyzing and Controlling Mid-Spatial Frequency (MSF) and Surface Roughness Errors on Optical Surfaces
This course is designed to reinforce the fundamentals of seeing, measuring and analyzing surface roughness and mid-spatial frequency (MSF) errors. After reviewing these fundamentals this course will cover how MSF errors are created, controlled and/or minimized using a variety of conventional and state of the art CNC optical manufacturing methods.
