Diffraction gratings are optical components that separate light into their colors. They are used in many different devices and instruments that improve our lives: security screening machines in airports, OCT scanners at the ophthalmologist, lasers used for cutting, and instruments for diagnosing disease or performing scientific research, to name just a few. Our gratings can be found all over the world, in medical clinics and manufacturing facilities, and at the top of mountains in giant telescopes. We’ve even sent gratings to the space station, the Moon, and Mars!

The first diffraction gratings our company made were used by IBM in early barcode readers. We make them by creating a pattern in a thin layer of gelatin sandwiched between two pieces of glass. We’ve perfected this technology over the past 20 years, and have several patents that allow us to make the best gratings in the world for some applications. Our customers depend on our quality, reliability, and consistency – which is what makes this Quality Technician position so important.
