Optomechanics – Just what is it you do?

Dear Colleagues:

It’s been busy the last few months.  Some of you have asked, “Just what is it you do?”  Well, here’s just a sampling:

I’ve researched the intellectual property of mechanisms for focus and diaphragm control in camera lenses;

I’ve analyzed microradian-level image jitter in an off-axis imaging spectrometer (with AEH/Ivory and MSC/Nastran of course);

I’ve co-invented a remote sensing 10:1 zoom system with five moving lens groups, three of which are lenslet arrays.

Who could possibly have more fun than a mechanical engineer in this optics industry?

I hope you will join me in this paean to Springtime.  Joy!

  1. This is the appropriate weblog for anybody who wants to find out about this topic. You realize a lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that I really would want…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Nice stuff, simply nice!
