Serve as a key member of cross-functional engineering teams (internal and external) consisting of optical, electrical, software, mechanical, manufacturing, and quality engineers to achieve project deliverables. 2. Design, develop, build, and test optical systems used in complex bio-analytical instruments. Illumination sources may include LEDs, lasers, solid state lasers, and conventional lamps. Detectors may include solid-state devices, photomultipliers, and cameras. Systems will include both imaging and non-imaging optics. Spectral regimes will typically span near-UV, visible, and near-IR (200nm to 1200nm). 3. Design and/or specify optical components such as lens, imagers, reflectors, filters, gratings, and detectors, both off-the-shelf and custom. Interface with vendors for optical components, both standard and custom. 4. Analyze and optimize system performance considering, for example, optical and mechanical tolerances, thermal issues, and detector signal-to-noise. 5. Perform hands-on work with optical components and systems. Personally perform construction and test of optical prototypes, or supervise technicians doing this work. 6. Plan and develop optical test procedures in conjunction with engineering and production to verify quality requirement guidelines. Specify and design optical alignment and test equipment for both development and production. 7. Understand customer product requirements and develop optical systems to meet those requirements. 8. Present product design, analysis, and test results to internal and external customers. 9. Understand and comply with ethical, legal, and regulatory requirements applicable to our business.
PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS: 1. MS degree and 6 years experience or PhD degree and 4 years of experience is preferred. Experience must have been developing optical systems and products.
