ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
Please join us for a FREE webinar sponsored by Particle Measuring Systems.
Advanced optics manufacturing now requires much cleaner environments than were necessary in the past. John Davis of Particle Measuring Systems provides an overview of particle generation sources, control methods and ISO standards, to help you achieve a clean environment that maximizes productivity.
Davis examines performance trends in the optics industry that are driving manufacturers to reduce the contamination levels to which a component is exposed during manufacturing, including cleaning, handling, coating and assembly. He discusses how quality control can be compromised through component exposure to particulate and molecular contamination, affecting laser damage thresholds in coatings; yields in nano-optics and LED production; and causing optical defects in high energy UV optics.
The advantages of continuous monitoring with laser particle counters are discussed. Davis provides multiple examples of particle excursions in the optics industry that have been found and fixed, illustrating the types of improvements that can be made through contamination control.
John Davis is the Global Applications Engineering Manager at Particle Measuring Systems. He is responsible for working with customers to provide contamination monitoring solutions. Prior to Particle Measuring Systems, Davis spent multiple years as a product manager of thin film optical coating manufacturing equipment. Mr. Davis has an MS in Mechanical Engineering and an MBA.
