Stephen says: I have been engaged in the development and design of optical systems for almost 3 decades. I have worked at Eastman Kodak where I was responsible for imaging, illumination, and laser writing systems development. I have also been a cofounder of a plastic optic molding company, and am very familiar with many of the practical benefits available, and issues imposed when employing plastic optical components alone and in combination with glass. SMA has conducted development of optical systems in concert with several Fortune 500 companies, and has also worked to co-develop systems for high technology startup companies. Our experience extends from biomedical to defense to commercial to consumer systems - all using Zemax at both the Professional and Premium levels. We are experienced in development, design, and can often arrange rapid prototype development for those systems we design. We have a suite of optical measurement capabilities as well, so that we can confirm prototype performance against design predictions.
