SVC members and the public benefit from the continued expansion of Society activities. The annual Technical Conference (TechCon) includes an in-depth Technical Program, a broad Education Program, and an Exhibit. A newsletter, a web site, a series of Educational Guides to assist in understanding vacuum coating processing, an On-Site Education Program, a Glossary of Terms Used in Vacuum Coating, and a CD-ROM and printed book of manuscripts from past Technical Conference Proceedings represent other significant resources available from the Society.
Historical presentations available on line include an article on the History of Vacuum Coating Technologies, oral interviews with people associated with the development of the vacuum coating industry, and hard-to-find historical papers.
The SVC also presents educational programs, technical papers, and exhibits on vacuum coating at the annual meetings of other professional societies. These programs have served to provide electroplaters, surface finishers, and others with an introduction to vacuum technology and vacuum coating.
This product profile describes the features and characteristics of the zoom lens.
The Thermo Scientific™ ARL™ EQUINOX 3000 X-ray Diffractometer for research enables accurate measurements.
KLA’s Filmetrics F40 allows you to transform your benchtop microscope into an instrument to measure thickness and refractive index.
In this interview, AZoOptics talks to Davis Bowling, who provides guidance into extended reality (XR) optical testing and demonstrates how to optimize the testing process.
AZoOptics speaks to Jan Novotný, one of the founding members of Lightigo, about the significance of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) in the elemental analysis field. Discussing Lightigo's rapid technology, Novotný discusses the latest trends in LIBS technology and its many benefits in several applications.
Dr. Stefan Weber
AZoOptics speaks to Phaseform, whose approach to adaptive optics is helping to refine optic technologies across applications like life sciences microscopy and optical inspection.
