Emergence of Freeform Optics in Imaging Systems: A Leap Forward

Wed, Feb 27, 2019 1:00P EST
Sponsored by
Following a brief introduction, professor Jannick Rolland will discuss the historical context and applications for freeform optics. She will then present mathematical descriptions and the latest methods of optical design. As time allows, she will discuss some of the primary fabrication techniques and provide a short update on freeform metrology.

This webinar is sponsored by Greenlight Optics, an integrated optical systems engineering and manufacturing company specializing in projection modules, plastic optics molding and diamond turning, LED and laser illumination, imaging and sensor systems, and freeform optics.

About the presenter:
Professor Jannick Rolland, University of Rochester.Jannick Rolland is the Brian J. Thompson Professor in Optical Engineering at the University of Rochester. She is the director of the Center for Freeform Optics (CeFO) supported by the National Science Foundation in the U.S. and corporations worldwide. She earned an optical engineering diploma from the Institut D'Optique Théorique et Appliquée, France, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in optical science from the College of Optical Sciences at the University of Arizona. Professor Rolland is a Fellow of OSA and SPIE. She is the recipient of the 2014 OSA David Richardson Medal and the 2017 Edmund A. Hajim Outstanding Faculty Award.

Who should attend:
Optical designers, engineers, those involved in the manufacture of optical systems, those involved in precision technologies, and anyone who is interested in increasing the compactness and performance of optical systems. Freeform optics encompasses a range of disciplines and industries, including transportation, semiconductor, displays, lighting, IR and defense, photovoltaics, remote sensing, and even quantum optics.
