World of Photonics Congress 2015
June 21-25, 2015
INVITED TALK on:
“High-Volume Manufacturing Methods for Precision Structured Surfaces”
Dr. G. Michael Morris, CEO, and Dr. Tasso Sales, CTO, are scheduled to present an Invited Talk as part of the 4th European Optical Society (EOS) Conference on Manufacturing and Testing of Optical Components (EOSMTOC), which part of the World of Photonics Congress 2015 in Munich, Germany, June 21-25, 2015.
The title and abstract for the Invited Talk follows:
High-Volume Manufacturing Methods for Precision Structured Surfaces
G. Michael Morris, Tasso Sales, RPC Photonics, Inc., Rochester, NY
Recent developments in mastering and replication of precision, gray-scale structured surfaces will be discussed. Surface-relief masters in photoresist, with depths up to 80 microns, are produced using gray-scale lithography, employing both laser-based flat-bed and seam-less drum-type scanning systems. The resulting surface-relief masters are used to produce high-volume production tooling for polymer injection molding, polymer-on-glass wafer replication, hot embossing and seamless, roll-to-roll manufacturing systems. Particular emphasis will be given on the fabrication of Engineered Diffusers(TM) for beam shaping and homogenization of laser and LED light sources for a wide variety of applications, including consumer electronics, commercial, medical, and defense systems.
