Join us for a FREE webinar - Wednesday, November 19, 2014, 1pm ET

Touching on when and why advanced engineering would require glass or ceramic over easier to machine materials, the bulk of the presentation will be on practical design advice. Learn about risk items and high cost mistakes, and a consideration of materials. Rules of thumb for engineers to optimize lightweighting, mounting, aligning, corners, wall thickness and radii and how to avoid quilting on polished faceplates and sheets.

Working in precision optics since 1997, presenter Matthew White’s experience includes projects involving NIF, SEMATECH, and custom machined glass production for leading semiconductor lithographic capital equipment suppliers. His MS is in Mechanical Engineering, University of California at Berkeley. He is currently Operations Manager for the Zygo Extreme Precision Optics group in Richmond, California, which specializes in custom machined, freeform and asphere component manufacturing.
