IDEX Optics & Photonics’ Dr. Turan Erdogan Interviewed by Laser Focus World
Rochester, NY - IDEX Optics & Photonics’ VP of Marketing and Business Development, Dr. Turan Erdogan, recently sat down with Laser Focus World’s Chief Editor, Conard Holton for an online interview to discuss the recent expansion of the high volume optics facility at Semrock. This new manufacturing capability allows the production of tens-of-thousands of spectrally complex, sputtered optical filters. Traditionally, high end coating technology was not optimized to produce high volume quantities. By combining Semrock’s extensive, proprietary knowledge of thin film coatings with our investment in new thin-film coating technology, Semrock now has the capability of producing high-performance filters in large quantities for volume customers.
Turan and Conrad also discuss:
- The focused industry for high volume optical filters
- International competition
- The changes IDEX Corporation has made after acquisitions
- Market growth potential
