Project Manager, Laser Optics
Laser Optics are used in a wide range of laser instrumentation or laser applications, including beam steering or material processing. Laser Optics use specific substrates, coatings, or a combination of the two to provide superior performance at specific laser wavelengths or over a range of wavelengths. Many Laser Optics feature laser damage thresholds designed for pulsed or CW lasers.
Candidates interested in this role should have the following skills
- Degree qualified in electronics, engineering or a similar discipline
- Strong IC/semiconductor background with a preference for sensor IC experience
- Previous business development/marketing experience within the semiconductor industry
- Any understanding of the optical market would be advantageous
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills
- A willingness to travel on a global basis product, marketing, semiconductors, IC, sensors, optics.

What is Laser optics
Optics in Lasers
A range of passive optical components is often used in lasers:
- Laser mirrors are often used for constructing laser resonators. Most of them are highly reflecting dielectric mirrors, while others have some partial transmissivity for use as output couplers. Dichroic mirrors are often used for injecting pump light into a laser resonator. For ultrafast lasers, one often requires dispersive mirrors.
- Lenses are not used much in laser resonators; focusing or defocusing is more often done with curved mirrors in order to minimize propagation losses and parasitic reflections.
- Prisms are more often used outside lasers, but sometimes also inside, particularly for dispersion compensation in ultrafast lasers.
- Wavelength tuning is often achieved by inserting some kind of optical filter in a laser resonator – for example, an etalon or a Lyot filter.
- Passive mode locking can be done by using a saturable absorber.
