You are Invited to Optical Engineering Tech Talk at Oregon Tech

Oregon Tech invites you to “Optical Engineering Tech Talk” on Thursday, May 15, 2014 at 6 p.m.

Oregon Tech invites you to “Optical Engineering Tech Talk” on Thursday, May 15, 2014 at 6 p.m. to meet our team, receive an overview of the optical engineering program, and learn about Microscopy, Innovation, and Kickstarter from special guest, Nick Bratt.

 
Oregon Tech alumnus Nick Bratt is President of 4D Optical and inventor of the MicrobeScope, a microscope that uses the camera on a cell phone, iPad, or tablet to magnify and send photos of microbes, anywhere, any time. Nick has raised $100,000 for this invention through Kickstarter. He will talk about his passion for invention, his start-up company, and the future of microscopes.
 
This event will also include a tour of the Optoelectronics lab, which allows for hands-on experience manipulating light. Here students calibrate photodetectors and learn quantitative radiometry to measure visible light. Advanced studies align lasers, grind mirrors, and splice fiber optics. By building spectroradiometers, microscopes, and interferometers from basic components, students acquire the critical skills needed to join one of more than 80 Oregon companies employing optoelectronics engineers.
 
This event is held at the Oregon Tech Wilsonville campus, room 106, 27500 SW Parkway Ave., Wilsonville 97070. RSVP by May 9 to Brittany.miles@oit.edu. We look forward to having you join us for an informative presentation and a fun networking event.
