Optica Rochester Section Annual Dinner Meeting

May 14 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Optica Rochester Section Logo

Join us for the annual business meeting and dinner hosted by the Rochester Section of Optica (ROC-Optica) featuring special guest speaker, AOM president Dr. Jim Burge!

Jim will be giving an invited talk titled, “Precision measurement of aspheric optical surfaces: a personal journey from university research to industry.”

Abstract: The manufacture of complex aspheric optical surfaces is limited by the ability to measure them. The mirrors in giant telescopes that are now operational on mountaintops and space were enabled by advances in measurement technology, including applications of computer-generated holograms (CGHs). These measurement techniques are now used to guide the finishing of a wide range of complex surfaces. This talk follows the story of specialized measurement technologies that grew up as university research to a mature state where they have become commonplace in industry.

Registration is open to both members and non-member guests. We hope you’ll join us!
