Bruce Truax is Manager of Optical Engineering at Zygo Corporation. Mr. Truax graduated from the University of Rochester with B.S. and M.S degrees in Optics and from the University of New Haven with an MBA. His career began at the Western Electric Engineering Research Center in Hopewell, NJ. He then moved to Zygo where he spent time in R&D, Product Development and Marketing. After 12 years at Zygo Mr. Truax started an optical engineering consulting business where he worked on a wide variety of optical instruments and metrology projects. Following 17 years as a consultant, Mr. Truax returned to Zygo, his current position.
In this webinar, Mr. Truax will review methods of measurement of radius of curvature of optical components and the associated error sources. The presentation will discuss the uncertainty of the various methods and demonstrate radius metrology using an interferometric radius slide. The results of an inter comparison between three high precision workstations will be presented showing the ability to measure radius to less than 10 parts per million with the proper technique.
