Notes From the CEO

18 September 2014

Introducing Two New Members of Our Business Development Team

Amber joins us as a Product Line Manager focusing on precision optical coatings, with particular emphasis on our rapidly growing Ultra-Series family of filters. She has earned a Masters in Optical Engineering from the University of Arizona and brings fresh talent to our team. Amber hit the ground running and immediately took on writing an interesting new white paper “Ultra-Narrowband optical bandpass filters with large format and improved temperature stability”. This paper includes data showing the intrinsic stability of hard coated narrowband filters as shown in Figure 1 below.

I was honored to learn that authors S. L. Allen, W. H. Meyer, G. D. Porter, and J. Howard of LLNL published a report, “Carbon ion flow measurements in DIII-D divertors by coherence imaging” showing a doubling of transmission with Alluxa filters as compared to industry standards, enabling new levels of signal sensitivity. At Alluxa we continue to strive to build and develop both our products and our team. It’s always nice to hear that Alluxa filters are helping our customers and making a difference in the industry

I always enjoy hearing from you. If you have any questions or comments please send me an email at CEO_Notes@Alluxa.com or schedule a meeting with us during one of the upcoming industry shows. Our home page indicates the next show we plan on attending.
