Extremely Educational Internship
Intern (Former Employee) – Allen, TX – December 31, 2015
I worked under a PhD design engineer for VCSEL transceivers. While at Finisar, I learned a great deal about laser physics, semiconductor manufacturing, VCSEL testing, and data analysis. I learned more in two months there than in most semesters of college.
I was primarily responsible for the characterization of high-power VCSEL arrays using optical test equipment including integrating spheres, high resolution cameras, and spectrometers. The lab engineers and technicians were helpful in teaching me testing procedures and were available to answer questions. I also used JMP Scripting Language to automatically compile test data from databases and output useful tables and graphs. Management had high expectations of me and I did my best to deliver by meeting deadlines and proactively testing parts.
Friendly, educational environment
