Area of Expertise:
Optical Test , wavefront reconstruction , linear and nonlinear fitting of experimental data
Profile Summary

In general, I work in design and tests of optical systems. I have experience designing both non-sequential and sequential systems with Zemax. I use Matlab as a tool of design work and for simulations of optical systems. Recently I have worked in associative memories.

One of my experiences in optical design includes irradiance simulations along the optical axis, for a solar concentrator (Currently under construction in Temixco) that uses as primary mirror a segmented one.

I have also worked in fit of multidmensional experimental data and general purpose optimization. For example, I worked with experimental data of power spectral density for validation and modification of the general theory of Harvey-Shack.
