PRINCIPAL ENGINEER, IMAGING OPTICS
Dr. Mike Rodgers experience is primarily in the area of the design, analysis, and tolerance allocation of optical systems. A significant fraction of his recent and ongoing work is in support of specialized advanced programs, conducted on-site at the customers’ facilities, which has led to successfully fabricated optics. One of Mike’s unique areas of expertise is the optical design of unobscured mirror systems with 3-7 mirrors.
Dr. John Rogers has designed such diverse systems as photogrammetry for clinical dental use, ophthalmic surgical systems, biocular and binocular systems, FLIR systems, helmet-mounted displays, zoom lenses, and systems using Gradient Index (GRIN) lenses, all of which resulted in operational hardware. He has expertise in optical fabrication and metrology and is an expert with the process of taking an optical design into production.
Dr. Rogers is the 2020 recipient of the SPIE Rudolf and Hilda Kingslake Award.
Dr. Blake Crowther has designed optical systems ranging from EUV lithography systems to low-cost, high-volume plastic optical systems to space systems. He has experience building and testing optical systems as well as complete camera systems. He has also led the design and buildup of optical systems.
OPTICAL ENGINEER, OPTICAL DESIGN
Scott William Sparrold is an experienced optical engineer with extensive experience in lens design, analysis, and tolerancing in visible through long-wavelength IR in the military, commercial, and optical research applications. ackground spans the full engineering life cycle from research into freeform optics, diffractives, and compact imaging spectrometers (hyperspectral) to manufacturing engineering for optical production systems with drop-together processes.
SENIOR SCIENTIST, ILLUMINATION ENGINEERING
Dr. Bill Cassarly is a driving force in the movement to create the field of computer-aided illumination engineering. His efforts include illumination optimization, illumination engineering consulting, technical papers and invited talks, educational course development, and intellectual property development.
