Able to correct reported values for secondary factors including system speed, operating temperature and polarization
  • Performs spectroscopy measurements of product and/or components using spectrophotometric equipment in accordance with established procedures, and specification of the MCS, with maximum efficiency and accuracy
  • Performs evaluations in a first in/first out basis unless otherwise directed. Alerts production manager or designated engineering staff to unexpected delays, product non-conformance, or other events that could negatively impact production commitments
  • Obtains accurate curves of transmission and blocking, from which data on percentage transmission, CWL, HBW, blocking wavelength, extreme ends and other information can be calculated
  • Accurately and legibly records measurement data on corresponding data evaluation sheets. Certifies spectral performance of completed product and/or components, recording and/or producing all documentation required.
  • Reviews measurement data in comparison to requirements and specifications reflected on Manufacturing Control Sheet (MCS) and other documents and drawings. Accepts product and certifies product performance when spectral measurement data meets or exceeds specifications. Completes and submits a rejection report when non-compliance is found
  • Conducts routine calibration of both wavelengths and intensity measuring capability. Ensure that spectrophotometric equipment is clean and in good working condition. Promptly notifies Production Manager of equipment problems

Qualifications and Skills
