Sydor Optics Moving to New Rochester Facility

Photonics.com
Jun 2007
Precision flat-surfaced optics fabricator Sydor Optics will begin its move to new headquarters this week from its original Rochester, N.Y., home of nearly 40 years to a new 26,000-sq-ft building at 31 Jet View Dr., Rochester, NY 14624. The company's phone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses will remain the same. Sydor said it will begin the four-day move of its administrative offices Thursday. The production side will begin its relocation June 25, a process expected to take less than two weeks. While Sydor's e-mail system will be functioning, its phones will not be working from 5 p.m. June 22 to 8 a.m. June 25. An additional construction project will begin this month at the new facility to add another 12,000 sq ft to house its calcium fluoride and magnesium fluoride operations, expected to be moved in November. The company has also updated its Web site: www.sydor.com



GLOSSARY
calcium fluoride
An optical material used in place of crown glass to produce lenses with extraordinary correction of chromatic aberrations. Its high coefficient of thermal expansion and its tendency to absorb moisture limit its range of application.
magnesium fluoride
A colorless, crystalline compound whose low refractive index (n = 1.38) makes it effective as a lens antireflection coating when deposited by thermal evaporation in a near vacuum. This process develops a coating that is robust and stable, though only a few molecules thick.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
