Manufacturing Engineer / Optics Fabrication / Diamond Turning / Thin Film / Orlando, FL
Engineer responsible for production support of optical patterning process. Provide technical guidance and support to optical patterning operators to facilitate performance. Apply lean manufacturing techniques to reduce cost and increase yields. Investigate root cause of failures/defects and implement corrective action to support continuous improvement. Candidate will be responsible for the leading the non recurring effort (NRE) to establish production manufacturing/test plans, define processes, and to lead the teams activities for managing all tooling, manufacturing aids, and capital requirements and transition the NRE into production environment.
Responsibilities include but are not limited to development and sustaining of lithography processes per customers' alignment and resolution requirements.
This position is located in Orlando, Florida and requires occasional domestic travel.
This position requires skills and/or experience in one or more categories of optics manufacturing engineering: optics fabrication or single point diamond turning
Candidates with optics fabrication or single point diamond turning specialization will have skills, experience and/or course work that includes the design, manufacturing and metrology of optical components. The required skills include knowledge of spherical and aspherical surface generating, grinding, polishing, edging, single point diamond turning, profilometry and interferometry.
Candidates with thin film coating specialization will have skills, experience and/or course work that includes the design, manufacturing and metrology of optical thin film coatings. Thin film coatings at LM, for UV/visible through IR applications, include broad band anti-flection (BBAR), high reflector, dichroic, and notch filters. The required skills includes knowledge of vacuum systems, physical vapor deposition using thermal resistive and e-beam sources, plasma assist using either reactive ion plating (RIP) or advanced plasma sources and sputtering systems. The candidate must have experience or knowledge of a variety of analytical and metrology techniques for thin film measurement, including in-process metrology,spectrophotometry, ellipsometry, and interferometry.
