Women in Optics: Mary Banning Friedlander developed multi-layer low reflecting coatings

Posted March 03, 2016 by Kristin

Rochester, New York is not just the “birthplace” of the thriving optics industry as we know it today, it’s also where the inclusion of women in STEM fields got its start. In 1941, Mary Banning Friedlander (FKA Mary Margaret Banning), a Physics Ph. D. from Johns-Hopkins University began her short but wildly successful career in optics and went on to develop multi-layer low reflecting coatings.

Online Tubing Thickness Measurement

Posted February 15, 2016 by Kristin

Lumetrics is the leader in online tubing thickness measurement systems for the ophthalmic, glass, and medical device market.  Our engineering team has developed a new fixture that eliminates the problems of line sensitivity that give all online systems trouble.  The new fixturing provides for easy loading and accommodates line changeovers to different size tubing. Water is the enemy of all hydrophilic tubing production, and the OptiGauge provides the crucial inner diameter, outter diameter, and wall thickness readings that customers require.

Measurement of Bioresorbable Stents

Posted December 15, 2015 by Kristin

Metal stents have been available since 1988.  Through the 1990’s, stents went through numerous iterations, incorporating different metals and coatings.  As the medical products industry moved through the 2000’s, the use of bioresorbable stents became the newest innovation.  And, it is a tremendous innovation.
