10 July 2018 From today's optical programs to tomorrow's dreams through optics manufacturing

Systems like TESS require specialized components that challenge all involved. These systems consist of many sub-components, but we are focused on the refractive and reflective optical components. One purpose of this talk is to introduce optical system designers to application specific manufacturing processes. We, as manufacturers, need to tailor our processes for the optic’s specific operational environment. In addition, we want to introduce some of our more unique manufacturing capabilities to allow system designers to widen their design space. It is now feasible to manufacture a wide range of sizes, shapes, and materials for many different applications.
