Applications of Optics
I have experience with optical components, assemblies and
instruments for various applications. Each has its own
particular requirements and I've learned something from each that I
can bring to the others.
Ion and dye lasers, fusion lasers, etalons, Lyot filters, Fresnel
and Mooney rhombs, multiple wavelength and achromatic waveplates,
prisms, photo-elastic modulators, non-imaging concentrators, imaging
optics, cryogenic assemblies, infrared and ultraviolet optics.
Immersed lenses, dichroic filters, infrared and ultraviolet optics.
DWDM etalons, micro-waveplates, multiple port prism assemblies,
instruments for measuring retardance and free spectral range.
Components for distance-measuring interferometers, instruments to
measure retardation, extinction and free spectral range, etalons,
frequency standards. A whole bag of little-known tricks and techniques
for optical shop measurement.
Massive aspheric mirrors, high finesse etalons, null testing,
Hartmann testing, Shack and Smartt and Saunders interferometers,
Scanners, FLIR, high power CW and Q-switched optics, water-cooled
and gas-cooled, heat-sinks and beam dumps, in Cu, Mo, Si, Ge, ZnSe,
GaAs, CaF2, SiO2, Al2O3,
gain media in rod and slab form, and aspherics including
