Please join us in giving a big round of applause to one of our key OEM sales account managers, Laura Cutter. Laura has done it all here at Omega, from running machines to helping customers find the perfect filter for their design. If you have a question about filters Laura is your gal! She has been at Omega for 28 years, longer than any other salesperson on our team. Anyone who has had the pleasure of working with her will tell you she is kind, driven, and always there to lend a helping hand. We couldn’t do it without you Laura!
We have learned in previous blog posts about the importance of knowing the refractive indices and thicknesses of the layers we are making. The interference, that makes our filters work, depends on it! Read on to learn how we keep our processes up to snuff using ellipsometry.
