Apr 2006
Electronic test and measurement product maker Agilent Technologies Inc. of Palo Alto, Calif., today announced that its in-house precision optics shop is now available for external customers to use in designing and manufacturing their products. Agilent said it developed the ability to make high-precision optical components and optomechanical assemblies to support its laser interferometer business. Now it will work with customers to provide design and production of flat and monolithic custom optics. Uses for precision optics include many nanotechnology applications, as well as lithography systems, medical and scientific instruments, optical fabrication equipment, lasers, astronomy, metrology systems, process-control systems, optical test and measurement equipment and interferometers.

GLOSSARY
astronomy
The scientific observation of celestial radiation that has reached the vicinity of Earth, and the interpretation of these observations to determine the characteristics of the extraterrestrial bodies and phenomena that have emitted the radiation.
laser interferometer
An interferometer that uses a laser as its light source. The purely monochromatic nature of the laser results in improved efficiency and overall performance.
metrology
The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
