CVI Laser Optics has hired Edgar Pigott as value stream manager of coating, the optics provider announced Wednesday.

Pigott joins the Albuquerque headquarters with more than 20 years of experience in lean manufacturing, most recently as director of operations at Schott Electronic Packaging. His primary responsibility will be to improve flow and first-pass yield in coating and cleanroom areas, the company said. Pigott has a BS in economics from the US Military Academy at West Point.

"I look forward to working alongside the CVI Laser Optics team and the opportunity to push their operational excellence to a new level for long-term success," Pigott said.

CVI Laser Optics, which specializes in optical components for lasers and laser-based systems, is a unit of Idex Optics & Photonics and was separated from Melles Griot in February (See: CVI Melles Griot Rebrands as 2 Companies).

optical coatings
Optical coatings are thin layers of materials applied to optical components, such as lenses, mirrors, filters, and prisms, to modify their reflective and transmissive properties. These coatings are designed to enhance the performance of optical systems by controlling the way light interacts with the surfaces of the components. The primary purposes of optical coatings include: Antireflection coating: This type of coating is designed to reduce reflections from the surfaces of optical...
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...
