Optical components utilizing sub-wavelength surface structures can achieve ultra-high transmissions with angle insensitivity, a broad bandwidth, and high laser induced damage thresholds.
Join us for a 45 minute webinar presented by Edmund Optics' experts Nathan Carlie, Nick Smith, and Randall Hinton to learn about the benefits of Nano-Structured Anti-Reflective Surfaces formed by reactive ion etching (RIE) and why they are a high transmission, high laser damage threshold alternative to anti-reflective multi-layer coatings.
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will have a strong understanding around:
Nathan Carlie received his Ph.D. in materials science and engineering from Clemson University in 2010 and has spent the last seven years developing materials and technologies for high-power lasers and IR optics. He joined the Edmund Optics team in 2016 and serves as R&D manager at the corporate headquarters in Barrington, New Jersey. Carlie holds six patents and has written over 40 papers and articles on the design and fabrication of optical materials and systems.
Nick Smith is a Laser Optics Business Development Manager for Edmund Optics. He brings a wealth of experience from within the industry, and his most recent position was in direct support of laser optics, specifically ion beam sputtered (IBS) coating capabilities. He has also held engineering roles covering traditional component manufacturing, CNC fabrication in spherical and aspheric components, injection plastic molding, glass molding support, and optical assembly support.
Randall Hinton is the Senior Solution Engineer for the Eastern US and Canada, and works out of EO’s headquarters in Barrington, New Jersey. As Senior Solution Engineer, Randall acts as the primary technical contact for customers, providing a portfolio of standard and custom solution paths for industrial applications of light. He has a broad knowledge of imaging, laser-based and defense applications. Randall holds a Master of Applied Physics degree from Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennslyvania, and a Bachelor of Science in Applied Physics/Computer Hardware degree from Grove City College, in Grove City, Pennslyvania.
