producing optical surfaces with finishes of less than 1 Å rms.
Finding his niche in the polishing world, he ventured out in 1974 and
co-founded what would become a highly successful, world class, optical
manufacturing company. His company was sold back in 2000 and now,
with over 40+ years in the industry, his skills are once again being
utilized here at Coastline Optics.
