Established in the mid 1980's, the Optics Program at UNM has acquired a national and international reputation. More than 60 students have graduated and found employment in industry, academia, and research laboratories. Pioneering research has originated from this program in areas ranging from the quantum theory of lasers to ultrashort pulse physics to optoelectronic devices, to cite only a few examples. The research facilities are located in the Department of Physics and Astronomy, in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and at UNM's Center for High-Technology Materials. In 1996 the Optics Program became a member of WICHE (Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education). There are numerous collaborations with the three National Laboratories in New Mexico - Sandia NL, Los Alamos NL, and the Air Force Research Laboratory, and with members of the optics industry cluster (New Mexico Optics Industry Association - NMOIA).
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.
