Identify novel optical test and characterization techniques to measure key performance metrics of sophisticated and novel optical systemsUse polarization optics or wave optics simulation tools to architect polarization sensitive optical system Build custom metrology hardware and perform hands-on measurements in the lab Use geometrical optics or wave-optics simulation tools to architect new characterization systems and to assess their expected performance and limitations Identify and implement optical metrics and specifications to deliver performance that matter to customer perception.
Work with suppliers to develop and bring up optical test platforms, perform statistical analysis of data to resolve optical performance and quality Travel to suppliers (up to 20%) to support engineering builds, and help with failure analysis activities
