Professional Development Classes 

                 

 
Southern California offers numerous opportunities for professional development at all levels from the experienced professional to those who are new to the optics and photonics community.   The OSSC maintains a close relationship with the Optical Engineering program at UC Irvine Extension and there are many OSSC members among the students, organizers and instructors.
 
 
  

Irvine Valley College (IVC) is now in its second year of a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant, a three-year Advanced Technological Education (ATE) award to fund the IVC Photonics Initiative.


This course details the most important tools that are used when working with light, from lasers and other light sources to cameras and sensors.  Photonic devices are used in lecture demonstrations and laboratory experiments to show how light can be generated, manipulated, and captured.  Hardware is broken down to its constituent components--lasers are reduced to gain media, pump sources, and mirror cavities; cameras are dissected down to their bare chemistry.  Students will gain hands-on experience with industrial hardware and tools in the laboratory.

LET 225 - Quality Assurance for Precision Optics
This course addresses the basics of specification, manufacturing, and assessment of precision optics. It presents an introduction to quality assurance (QA) practices required to identify, inspect, and measure optical components.  Materials and tools found in an industrial optics fabrication and inspection shop are used in lecture demonstrations and laboratory experiments.  Students will gain hands-on experience with these industrial materials and QA tools in the laboratory.

Courses spans 16 weeks from  August 18 – December 20, 2014
Please contact Dr. Brian Monacelli for information.
