… but we have a feeling that some careers are beginning!
- Nine students in East High’s Precision Optics Fabrication Program worked for 60 hours over 3 weeks making precision optical lenses.
- The students generated, loose abrasively ground, and polished microscope objectives and lenses for eyepieces and well as other components.
- Each student measured final parts on a Zygo GPI interferometer, made adjustments to the polishing stroke, and made a final measurement. The minimum specification was ½ wave. The top three final parts were 1/10th wave, 1/7th wave, and 1/6th wave.
- Students honed their fabrication skills generating, grinding, and polishing blocks of other lenses.
- Students went on tours of Corning Tropel and QED.
- When the students come back in the fall, they will continue their work on the alignment of the lenses and assembly into telescope housings.
