SC1114: The Proper Care of Optics: Cleaning, Handling, Storage and Shipping
There are many ways to clean optics; some are learned from experience and/or failure. This course explains the proper cleaning methods for optics that are used by professional optical technicians and engineers. How to clean optics has always been a challenging and controversial subject. Searching the Internet will yield hundreds of articles and videos that claim to know the best methods. This course will explain the simple steps used in cleaning optics. It will also describe the proper handling, storage and shipping of optical components. The course is designed for a diverse audience, from a first-time optical cleaner to an engineer searching for methods of handling and packaging optics. An in-class demonstration on inspecting and cleaning optics will be presented.
