12-16.01.2015 Ron Willey: Workshop Practical Design and Production of Optical Thin Films, Amsterdam

Highly recommended!

Ron Willey is an expert in optical thin film technology and an excellent teacher and autor of numerous publications.

I learned to value his talks about optical thin films since 1988. His slightly different and pragmatic approach helped me a lot to learn the process of coating design, process implementation and stable coating production. This 5 days workshop covering all aspects of coating production utilizes FilmStar*  from Fred Goldstein, and is suitable for both new and experienced users.


Date: 12-16 JANUARY 2015.
