Thin Film Deposition Technician/Optics Fabrication (Former Employee) – franklin,mass – December 12, 2012
There really were no typical days at work since each day was subject to different problems.(ie;equipment downtime,material shortages,scheduling issues,etc.) .Learned vacuum coating processes,optics replication processes, light measurement techniques using various types of spectro-photometers and optical component assembly . Co-workers varied with personality. Some were easy to work with and others not so much. Most difficult part of the job were the many variables that could occur during vacuum coating processes which affected the end result and the subsequent troubleshooting efforts.
