Apr 2008
Peter de Groot, PhD, director of research and development for Zygo Corp., has been elected a SPIE fellow for his many contributions to high-precision interferometry. "Dr. de Groot is the inventor and developer of optical metrology tools for inspecting a range of optical and engineering surfaces from MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) devices to airplane wings -- with more than 75 patents issued and pending and four R&D 100 Awards to his name, he is truly a prolific and leading inventor in the optical metrology arena," SPIE said in a statement. Zygo Corp. is based in Middlefield, Conn., and manufactures optical metrology instruments, precision optics and electro-optics for the semiconductor and industrial markets. SPIE will honor 72 new fellows this year for their contributions to optics, photonics and imaging.



GLOSSARY
interferometry
The study and utilization of interference phenomena, based on the wave properties of light.
metrology
The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
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...
